    The RePhone is a completely open source modular phone kit. Looks like fun.

    Cool idea. Would be fun to tinker with, but at this point, I can't see using one of these to replace my daily driver.

    If Google incorporated drivers (whatever the Android equivalent is) I see this taking off big time. I haven't bought a PC since my windows 3.1 one. I've built every one since. No bloatware. Just straight windows.

    I wasn't suggesting this should be your daily driver or anything, but it would sure be fun to tinker with.
