5. Take a Look: Bluetooth Keyboard Made of Bamboo
You’ve heard of iPad and Bluetooth keyboards, but designer Robin Behrstock is taking the idea au naturel – or at least close to it. Handmade from 92 percent bamboo, the rechargeable iZen keyboard is compatible with smart phones, tablet PCs and any other Bluetooth-enabled products you own.
“Bamboo is known as the greenest material on the planet,” the company says on its website. “It can survive and thrive in drought and flood conditions. It uses very little water to grow and requires no pesticides or fertilizers. It grows up to 40 times faster than traditional hardwood trees, giving it bragging rights in any forest. This amazing wood contributes 35 percent more oxygen than an equivalent strand of trees.”
