Wood-worked designs are infused with everyday technology to produce this bamboo calculator.

The Solar Bamboo Calculator is a new means of being a part of a sustainable eco-conscious society. Since bamboos grow quicker than regular trees and are more eco-friendly than plastic, it's the perfect substitute for simple calculators that usually end up in school garbage bins after graduation. The parts made from the bamboo are biodegradable. The bamboo calculator also uses solar power, which eliminates the use of batteries that end up in a landfill. The display can showcase up to 12 digits and shuts itself off after 12 minutes when not in use. The bamboo calculator can only be used for simple math equations and not complex algebra problems.
