These guys have come up with what can only be described as the way of the future. A phone made of blocks! Each block is detachable and connects to the base, which connects everything together. Two small screws lock everything in place, and electrical signals are transferred through the pins.
Why would you want a phone like this? "Every day we throw away millions of electronic devices, because they get old and become worn out. But usually it's only one of the components that cause the problem. The rest of the device works fine but is needlessly thrown away. This makes electronic waste one of the fastest growing waste streams in the world. And your phone is one of the biggest causes.”
The phoneblok can be completely customised to suit you and your needs, no matter what they are. What’s more, next time your phone gets a little slow, you can just upgrade that block without having to buy a complete new phone! If you wanted to upgrade any of the features, you can! Just replace that block.
‘Phonebloks is built on an open platform by companies working together to create the best phone in the world’ so you can still support your favourite brands or even develop your own blocks!
