With all the hubbub surrounding the release of the iPhone 5, it seems fitting to feature an accessory for mobile devices that is significantly more low-tech: the iBam 2 bamboo speakers.
A tube of bamboo channels sound out and away from the phone, amplifying it for an electricity-free musical experience. The iBam 2 is an update from the original iBam released in 2011 by the Sustainable Living Lab and featured at TEDxBled. Each sale of an iBam 2—at $63.22—supports disadvantaged women, traditional craftsmen and at-risk youth. The bamboo speakers can be purchased on pasargora.net.
