Phonebloks by Dave Hakkens is problem-solving at its finest. Most smartphones are thrown away because they can’t be upgraded or have become obsolete. This leads to a sizable impact on the environment owing to the electronic waste left behind by broken components.
Phonebloks is a modular smartphone that combats this problem by being fully customizable. Essentially, each click-on component can be upgraded according to your tastes and needs, or – when a particular “blok” has run its course – replaced with a brand new one in perfect working order.
Is the battery life of your phone getting you down? Upgrade it with a battery module instead of buying a whole new one. Has the camera on your smartphone fallen behind the times a bit? That’s cool, instead of going through the trouble of getting a new phone, get a module with a camera upgrade to solve the problem.
