Universal bamboo battery by Jose Gonzalez

Jose Gonzalez designed this battery for the O+O project at Yamaha, which has a bamboo and copper casing. “Its aim is [to] encourage users to reduce their quantity of batteries by using a universal battery, which can supply electricity for all kind of DC powered devices, such as laptop, Hifi, electric guitar etc.” The visually stunning choice of materials makes the battery a prized possession, in contrast with common batteries that often look disposable. The bamboo is not the only environmentally friendly extra feature. Believe it or not, Gonzalez has designed a pedaling bicycle that charges the battery.
