Phonebloks – (video) An innovative way to look at the way we use phones

Phonebloks – YouTube.

I ran into this video while surfing the web and I thought it was a pretty cool concept.

This guy (Dave Hakkens) wants to make phones last longer by using different parts of phones attachable/detachable like the camera, battery, hdd, etc. Its a very interesting way of viewing our usage of phones because essentially, he’s right. We run through phones so quickly because we want the next best thing in the mobile community, bragging about how many gigs or megapixels a smart phone has. Now being realistic, I doubt any companies will get behind this, but as far as this concept of mobile phone usage and using new, different parts instead of buying a completely new phone would be an interesting topic to talk about in class.
