The bamboo smartphone started as a concept by Middlesex University student Kieron-Scott Woodhouse (pictured here on the right). A technology entrepreneur contacted Woodhouse after spotting his design online, and now the handset is becoming a reality.

Woodhouse and team explored using other material to construct the phone but chose bamboo because it grows fast, is sustainable, and can be locally sourced from China, where the handsets are made. The wood is also treated for extra durability.

The ADzero is half the weight of an iPhone and also has a larger screen, but the company didn't provide any specific numbers.

It also has an unspecified camera, with a flash that encompasses the entire lens. Woodhouse says this will provide more even illumination and minimize shadows.
