Finally (and for the first time), you have the opportunity to cast a vote for the kind of world you want. Together we’ll end planned obsolescence: the upgradable smartphone is coming! PuzzlePhone’s Crowdfunding campaign begins… soon! Subscribe and be the first to know.
As PuzzlePhone nears its product release in 2016, market validation of our idea is becoming ever more important. Hence, we’re going crowdfunding to allow individuals to vote with their wallets for the kind of future they want with their hearts. You’ve told us a long-lasting smartphone is a great idea. Now you have the opportunity to back one.
But it’s more than just backing PuzzlePhone: it’s sending a message to the industry at large: As humans, we value sustainability. As users, we’ve long had sustainable choices when it comes to cars or clothing or food. So why not with mobile phones? Crowdfund PuzzlePhone to send a message loud and clear: We demand sustainable values in the industry, too.
How is PuzzlePhone sustainable? For starters, it’s made in Finland. Our success means the success of European industry. And our production ecosystem is also entirely transportable – so when PuzzlePhone conquers the world, it will do so by supporting local manufacturing in every key market.
The PuzzlePhone itself is designed for longevity. It’s a modular smartphone which can last 10 years. (No, that is not a typo.) Replace PuzzlePhone modules as they reach technological obsolescence or wear out – but don’t throw out the phone. And the old parts can be put to #ReUse, too. Hand over your modules to someone else who can use them, or employ them in PuzzleCluster.
Crowdfunding resources will be used to enable the manufacturing of the device (R&D has already been secured through public and private investors and the EU).
Join us in making your voice heard! Support PuzzlePhone and make a statement about your own sustainable priorities, as well as sending a message to the industry that PuzzlePhone is the paradigm shift from “take, make, waste” to “reduce, reuse, recycle.”
