Today we have some exciting news! Together with our friends at Phonebloks we launched a Phonebloks community of enthusiasts of the concept.
What is Phonebloks?
In case you haven’t heard of the concept, Phonebloks is a modular smartphone concept created by Dutch designer Dave Hakkens to reduce electronic waste. While Phonebloks is not the first attempt at modular design in a phone, it is notable due to the extent of its modularity and the attention and support it has garnered. By attaching individual third-party components (called “bloks”) to a main board, a user would create a personalized smartphone. These bloks can be replaced at will if they break or the user wishes to upgrade. Watch the video.
About the community
Together with the input of the online community, Phonebloks want to develop the first prototype of this modular phone, by sharing the process online and using the feedback of consumers during the development. Phonebloks is also teaming up with Motorala, to bring the prototype to life as soon as possible.
