Phonebloks, a Lego-esque modular smartphone
A Dutch designer has come up with an interesting concept for a smartphone called Phonebloks that lets users replace and upgrade parts similar to what you do with a Lego block.
Dave Hakken, the person behind this concept builds on the idea of a phone “worth keeping.” Instead of disposing the whole phone when it gets broken or gets old, you can just easily swap the broken or outdated “block” with a new one. Preserving the parts that are still usable.
Phoneblok also allows users to customize their smartphone according to their needs. You can remove blocks that are not essential and allocate that space for more important features like battery, for example. Watch the video below for a better understanding.
However, as mentioned earlier, Phonebloks is currently a concept and needs the attention of big brands and investors to make Phonebloks a reality. For that, the Phonebloks team has turned to Thunderclap to gain as much social reach as possible to create demand.
