What would happen if cell phones could be upgraded easily by us, without having to replace them? This is the idea behind Dave Hakkens Phonebloks. Everyday we throw away millions of electronic devices, most of the times its only one of the components that causes the problem, the rest of the device works fine, but still gets thrown away. Phonebloks is a customizable modular smartphone, made of blocks connected to the base, with the user choosing which components they need most, a bigger storage block, a bigger battery block, more memory, bigger speaker and so on. You can choose the blocks you want, upgrade the blocks you want or even develop your own blocks. Phonebloks is currently still in concept stage, the project is on the crowd-speaking platform 'Thunderclap' hoping to get enough support to move ahead with production. #interesting #innovative #cellphone #engineer #engineering ~aurora
