An interesting new patent was published last week detailing how an environmentally friendly mobile phone could be made from bamboo featuring a nanotech coating.
The patent, filed June 2006, shows how the phone would have a full range of functions including sterilizing, deodorizing, antifouling and self-cleaning, internet browsing, listening to MP3, taking photographs, infrared and bluetooth transmission and wireless 3G communication.
According to the patent the phone would have a bamboo casing with an "outer surface and a coating containing nanoparticles". Bamboo has been chosen as it is "natural and recyclable". The bamboo would be pre-treated with gamma-rays making it more durable and removing any bacteria, moisture, debris and contamination. To make the phone even more high tech the bamboo would be coated with nanoparticles such as titanium dioxide, silver or zinc dioxide.
