PhoneBloks - Lego like phone that allows you to customize any part of the phone


Pretty cool

One of the better kickstarter type projects I have seen lately.

great idea, but it wouldn't be a money maker being open source.

You think you're fricked when you drop an iPhone?! Think how fricked you are when you drop that one!

wouldn't really be much different. Might actually be better

I don't think it is a realistic concept though. I also don't think it would be as cost effective as they are making it out to be

Also, to make this phone "fun" you would have to buy the cheapest one, just so you could buy all the upgraded parts.

Why not? You're still mass producing individual parts, just not the assembly.

In fact, if part manufacturers decided to sell directly to the consumer, it might even be cheaper.

I saw this story on Gizmodo, looks like a great idea for a phone, just not sure how well it will actually work.

It won't at all, because it will never be developed.

Because it's too awesome of an idea?

Plenty of people like building computers. Let us build phones too

I'd buy it.

I like the idea of being able to upgrade my phone just like my computer. No need for me to get an entirely new phone when all I really want is a newer processor/more ram.
