RePhone – make your own your phone, call your dog

RePhone Kit Crate

Ever looked at your phone and think, “Man, I want to make my own?” Well with RePhone, the open source and modular kit, you can actually piece together your own smartphone. Ditch pre-paid for the homemade.

This kit actually lets you create your own phone using modules, software and cardboard cases. Your finished product is much smaller than a standard phone and looks akin to the face of a smart watch but it does work. You can use it as an actual phone or you can get really creative with it.

You can give the power of connection to your pets. I mean, you know you’ve always wanted to telephone your dog. Check in with them during the day. Or to your bike or anything at all you want. This project is basically plug and play, you can have a working phone in minutes and then depending on your level of expertise can begin programing it to do cool things. If you’re not a programmer then there’s a drag and drop feature so you can use it to. RePhone starts at $39 and the earliest shipments will be later this month.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
