Last night I was on Facebook, just cruising as I do and I see a link shared by my Dad’s company.
The caption of this video was this, “Very interesting idea. Would you adopt this phone technology? // #phoneblocks”
I was like, “well this might be interesting.”
I have had an iPhone for 5 years. I got the iPhone 3 on my 13th birthday, and from there I haven’t thought about having any other phone.
Droids have come out and the iPhone still seems better. The Galaxy series came out, and still the iPhone seems better, but this Blok phone is the 1st phone that I have thought about actually switching to.
This phone isn’t out yet, but the concept is great.
Electronic waste is an ever-growing thing in this world, and our phones are contributing to this issue greatly.
Our phones aren’t made to last, they are made to last until a new one comes out and then suddenly stuff starts to break.
This block concept eliminates the phasing out of the entire phone.
There is a block for every component of the phone, so if one breaks, you just replace that block.
It allows the user the ability to customize their phone. Photographers can upgrade to a bigger camera, old people can go simple so they know what the hell they are doing and don’t have to ask me how to press a button that says “phone” to use the phone.
(Love you mom).
This idea needs funding, and it needs to be spread across to all of the executives across the country so people know about it.
On October 29 they will send a blast out to all major companies to try to get the process rolling.
They need our help to get the word out.
Go to phonebloks.com and join the Thunderclap so that they can get enough people to make their dream a reality.
Not only could this introduce a brand new, very cool phone to the market, but it could cut down on waste and help the general well-being of the world we live in.
