The new iPhone was announced this week in all it's "meh" glory and I find myself thinking about upgrading to a new phone. Now, I also have a drawer in my apartment that houses every phone I've ever owned all the way back to my first Nokia stick phone. (Oh, the countless hours of Snake I played!) Why do I keep adding to this drawer? I want a newer faster phone. I also want a better camera, but there's nothing out there that fits all of my needs exactly. Dave Hakkens has come up with a really intriguing idea on how to curb this incessant need to upgrade to an entirely different device.
The PhoneBlok is like Build-A-Bear for adults. You choose the pieces you want and attach them to the main board. As time goes on, you replace pieces instead of the entire unit.
A phone you can customize to your needs and reduce waste? Color me supportive. If you like this idea, visit Dave's site Thunderclap to see how you can make this idea a reality.Post Script: Oh hey, MT&HD, how are you? Sorry it's been a while. Busy, ya know? You look great. Did you lose weight?
