Do you know what the largest growing waste stream in the world is? It is computer and electronic waste. So why shouldn’t we make open source platforms for these devices that help minimize this waste? The answer is we definitely should and Phonebloks is hoping to do that. An open platform with customizable and interchangeable components to both make your phone fit your lifestyle and usage, but also more importantly it is a way to keep us from having to upgrade an entire device every year or two. I am excited to see the future of Phonebloks and hopefully they can inform a revolution in tech manufacturing.
