Feast your eyes on these cool phones. But that’s as close as you’ll be getting to Siemen’s eco-taunting of how green a cell phone can be.
Siemens, the German engineering giant, commissioned design firms to come up with the ultimate in green phones. Formwelt and Hans-Henning Brabänder dreamed big and envisioned something bold and green.
The Leaf is made of raw recyclable materials of eco-plastic and liquid wood and plant-based fiber. The invisible OLED display is embedded in the translucent casing which gives the phone a futuristic look.
The Solar is the high-end phone and uses solar cells harnessing sunlight as a natural energy source. The phone has detachable materials like metal, plastic and eco-glass. The neatest component of the solar is its eco-index, a touch pad that breaks down how environmentally-friendly the phone is, from its 92% recyclability to its organic LED.
There’s no word if Siemens will ever actually make these phones.
