PhoneBloks is currently no more than an idea and a proposal.
I’ve been told that it is impractical, unrealistic, and will never happen.
Maybe. Maybe not.
This is the phone.
All the component modules fit onto a back plate and you can personalise, or upgrade, your phone by exchanging the appropriate module.

In this 2 minute video you will see how they plan to get the support to start the ball rolling to have it made. I’m supporting that.
My point is that we have got to put our minds to how we manufacture – and where we manufacture
We could easily design all products with re-use of the raw materials in mind. So we stop digging out more from the earth.
We could stop manufacturing in one country for use in another and slash the use of irreplaceable oil in moving “stuff” round the globe.
We simply need to decide to do it.
Phonebloks is one way of changing.
