iZen is apparently a wicked-cool Colorado startup that offers bamboo keyboards and iPad stands! It’s looking for the funding for its second round of production over on Kickstarter. Of course, if you help fund it, you can get some special offers and other goodies. Here’s the kickstarter video and widget, followed by a bunch of pictures of the cool keyboard and a little more info:
“Until now, environmentally friendly electronics has been an oxymoron. We envision a future with less plastic filling up our landfills, and iZen keyboards are a catlyst for this change. iZen Bamboo is the first eco-friendly bluetooth keyboard on the market. Its low profile, portable design is great for anyone on-the-go, and the simple and natural look will add more Zen to your life. Hand-made out of 92% bamboo, this keyboard is renewable, recyclable, and won’t pile up in landfills. It works wirelessly with iPads, iPhones, Macs, Androids, tablet PCs, smart phones, and many other Bluetooth-enabled devices. And let’s face it, it’s gorgeous! We self funded the first round of production which just hit the internet and local stores. After only a couple weeks, we are already almost out of inventory and we need your help to fund our next round of production!”
