Biodegradable phone will sprout sunflowers
(Filed: 29/03/2006)

A mobile phone implanted with a sunflower seed and made from biodegradable material is among the cutting edge cellular technology which has been unveiled at the Science Museum.
The theory is that the biodegradable phone cover will release nutrients as it deteriorates, helping the sunflower grow.
It is hoped that the prototype, developed by researchers from Warwick University, will mean phone covers can simply be buried in the ground after use.
The innovation was one of a series of biodegradable phones on display at the Dead Ringers? exhibition at the Science Museum.
Among the more unusual exhibits was a lasagne-based circuit board and a phone which will be able to take itself apart to aid recycling.
