If this isn’t the most perfect MakerBot companion accessory, I don’t know what is.
Yes, that is a lasercut, open source, DIY custom cell phone, from the researchers at MIT’s High-Low Tech group. Those are all the things we love. These are the questions those guys and girls are asking themselves as they go.
How close can a homemade project come to the design of a cutting edge device? What are the economics of building a high-tech device in small quantities? Which parts are even available to individual consumers? What’s required for people to customize and build their own devices?
This looks like a great start. I really just want to see this being held by a MakerBot Arm.
