Bamboo can be eaten, fashioned into clothes, machined into lumber and now it can be played with on the iPhone. Learn about the different species of bamboo and even play music with the Bamboolaphone. The Black Belt Bamboost app highlights the fastest growing plant on the planet, and promotes the spread of knowledge about the economic and environmental advantages for growing and harvesting bamboo.
