A Bri­tish stu­dent frus­trated with the same­ness of mo­bile phone de­sign took mat­ters into his own hands and de­signed an or­ganic bam­boo hand­set. The phone was on dis­play at London De­sign Week last year, and the re­ac­tion was so favourable the phone has at­tracted the at­ten­tion of in­vestors and is to be re­leased through­out Europe this year. Kieron-scott Wood­house, a 23-year-old stu­dent of prod­uct de­sign at Mid­dle­sex Univer­sity, chose bam­boo for its dura­bil­ity and fin­ish. The phone runs on the An­droid sys­tem and fea­tures some new tech­nol­ogy not cur­rently avail­able on the smart­phone mar­ket.
