Phonebloks concept lets your build your own phone
Time to change it up

Lego is fun. People love smartphones. So the Phonebloks concept sounds like a winner - a smartphone which allows you to really easily replace broken parts or upgrade to newer technology with simple blocks.

Fancy a faster processor? No problem, just pop out the old one and stick in a faster block. Broken the camera? Just buy a new one and replace. Easy, right?

If only someone knew how to make it. For now, it's just a good idea and nothing more. But if you have the answer, get in touch!
