If you’re tired of replacing an entire phone when one part gets ruined, you have to spread the word that you’d be interested in phonebloks by Dave Hakkens.

Phonebloks is a project that was created to get rid of technological frustrations when it comes to new phones. This device is made out of detachable blocks so each part works separate from each other. If one part of your phone breaks, you simply just remove it and replace it with a new one. This way you get to keep your phone and won’t have to go through the annoyance of emptying your bank account and losing important information.

This new design also has consumers in mind, as it offers a customizable experience. For example, if you’re someone who loves taking pictures, you can choose to include a bigger camera piece as opposed to a bigger storage space.

In order to spread the word, Hakkens is using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to encourage people to ‘join the thunderclap’ on the site and on October 29th, a giant blast of everyone’s support will be released to make a huge statement.

Phonebloks by Dave Hakkens is also eco-friendly, as it helps eliminate the mass amount of electronic waste people create when throwing out entire phones. Stats for Crowdsourced Detachable Phones Trending: Older & Buzzing
