I want to improve the world. Step by step. Blok by blok.

Dave Hakkens is a visionary. His idea of a modular smartphone turned him and his idea into a YouTube sensation overnight. Today, Hakkens inspires designers from the largest consumer electronics companies worldwide.

Smartphones have taken the world as a storm - there are millions of apps to choose from and millions of ways that smartphones have positive impacts on our daily lives. But that does not mean that smart phones could not become even smarter. Dave Hakkens has re-thought the smart phone. In his Phoneblocks concept, elements such as the camera, screen, memory and processor are all individual, exchageable modules - "Bloks" - that have the ability to be swapped in and out as a user sees fit.

Although the idea of this may seem to be very technical, it would democratize smartphone usage for the consumer. Because of the Bloks, users worldwide can design their very own individually tailor made smart phone. If a module of the phone gets damaged, it can simply be replaced. If you want to take photos at a higher resolution, you can simply change the camera blok. If you want better sound, you can upgrade to the Sennheiser sound blok. The possibilities are endless.

And there are even more advantages: worlwide electronic waste could be dramatically reduced by the concept. Instead of upgrading your phone every two years for the latest and greatest model, you can now easily repair the broken parts and replace what actually requires an upgrade. Consumers and bloggers aren‘t the only ones who are fascinated by the concept. It also caught the eye of Sennheiser and Google, who are currently supporting Hakkens‘ vision as he creates the first prototype. Hakkens is a revolutionary and his idea is groundbreaking: Dave Hakkens has MOMENTUM.
