Everyone has a cell phone, and the majority have smartphones but we're all dependent on what our service provider wants to develop. Or are we?

While all of the main providers limit our access to new phones by what they choose to carry, the planned obsolescence of mobile phone technology means that as a society we are producing excessive technology waste. A new crowdsource project is seeking to change that this October.

Instead of entire devices becoming obsolete, make the device modular. Customize the components of your phone to make it relevant to you. Your phone will never be out of date again.

Do you think it will succeed?
