This here is a large piece of bamboo that’s been cut up and turned into a passive sound amplifier for the iPhone. The bottom was machined flat so that it may stand upright and an opening for the iPhone 4/4S dug at the top. It’s then painted, put in a canvas bag and shipped to you for all of $31 ($25 plus $6 for shipping). The “natural properties of bamboo” amplify the sound though to be honest, I don’t think bamboo has anything to do with it. Any material shaped this way would produce similar amplification.
It does look distinct, screams of your love for all things green and won’t break the bank so you can keep buying your tofurkey and other eco-conscious paraphernalia.
