Modular LEGO-Like Smartphone Design Cuts Down on Waste

I found this via Mashable. This is an amazing idea, ok, not a new idea, but a great idea nevertheless. Configurable, interchangeable. Extendable. I love it. I mean, imagine just how good this could be. It reminds of buglabs modular hardware which had a bespoke DSP module. Buglabs was (is) very developer / prototyping centric, which is fine, that’s what it was designed for, but if this stuff got made it could be amazing.

I’m sure that it would be very complicated, but what isn’t if it’s worth doing?

So, please, someone make this!

And I’d like to add that it should have interchangeable operating systems too, I mean, why not?

Anyway, here’s the video’s description …

A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it’s often just one part which killed it we throw everything away since it’s almost impossible to repair or upgrade. visit http://www.phonebloks.com to show your support and raise your voice.
