How do you like the idea of modular smartphone?
Authors of the project Phonebloks believe that today’s smartphones have a number of problems to be solved . According to them, the mobile devices are often broken, difficult to repair and upgrade. Needless to say, the guys offered a solution to this problem and now need your support.
The idea is to create a smartphone, which is entirely composed of modules. This implies that the display, the CPU / GPU, battery, drive, camera module, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and so on are separate units that are attached to the motherboard.
The guys claim that the modular design makes it easy to repair your phone if it breaks because each component can be quickly and easily replaced. This is better than replacing the whole unit. In addition, the user can modify your smart phone to suit personal requirements.
The idea is pretty interesting, but also poses a number of problems. For the production of individual units, for example, require support from hardware manufacturers. Typically, companies are reluctant to change their business model work. It is worth noting that the authors are not looking Phonebloks until the financial and social support.
All concerned are asked to give their opinion on the project page on Thunderclap to 29 October this year. In support Phonebloks already voted more than 25,000 people, although originally required only 10,000 votes.
How’s that idea?
