A beautiful departure from the disposable concept of just about every other phone made today. This phone is designed to wear in not wear or be thrown out. Produced by Hulger, their first ever wooden pip*phone is fashioned from the distinctively grained African hardwood Ziricote, “normally used for decorative objects, this phone blends innovation with tradition. The Ziricote* comes in it own wooden box and is accompanied by a pot of wax, for treatment”. Cost for this one time item is about $3850US – courtesy of Digital Wellbeing Showroom.
It will be some time before we see a break from the throw away model of consumer electronics. Where will your iPod shuffle be in 10 years?
