iBamboo is a custom-designed bamboo stand that amplifies and clarifies the stereo effect created by the iPhone's built-in speaker.

Merging the latest high tech with the simple beauty of nature, iBamboo is a 100% eco-friendly speaker made from a whole length of bamboo. The natural resonance of the bamboo amplifies the sound produced by the iPhone's built-in speaker. The sound waves move in two directions at once, intensifying the stereo effect created by the iPhone.

Bamboo is stronger, more flexible and forgiving than plastic or some metals. A foot-long, whole link of bamboo requires only a few modifications to make it an iPhone-compatible speaker. The top of the bamboo is precision-cut to create an opening that, in concert with the natural construction of bamboo, serves as a fitted dock that fixes the iPhone in place.

iBamboo is a practical and aesthetically pleasing device, with a simple design. It is machined, laser-cut, and then finished by hand, which allows for fast, efficient, eco-friendly production. 

It is practically impossible to listen to Classical, Instrumental and Jazz music on the iPhone speaker. The quality is very poor and flat. iBamboo provides the perfect acoustics for this music, emphasizing the full spectrum of the music, and improves the quality of the sound.

Since bamboo is a natural material, no two iBamboos are alike. Every piece has the same functional parameters, but each one is unique in its appearance and beauty. As an added benefit, iBamboo improves the feng-shui of your desk or whatever other place you put it.

Today, the iBamboo is compatible with the iPhone 4 only.

Currently the projected price of an iBamboo unit is between 25-30 US$.
