Smartphone Customization Goes to a Whole New Level

Make your own Nokia Lumia 820

In an earlier post we discussed the far reaching (and tasty) possibilities of the rapid prototyping movement. Recently, Nokia released the specs to 3D print the shell of the Windows Phone Lumia 820. That along with 3D templates, recommended materials and best practices so anyone can “print” their own Lumia 820 case.

The announcement from Nokia Conversations continues:

“In the future, I envision wildly more modular and customizable phones. Perhaps in addition to our own beautifully-designed phones, we could sell some kind of phone template, and entrepreneurs the world over could build a local business on building phones precisely tailored to the needs of his or her local community. You want a waterproof, glow-in-the-dark phone with a bottle-opener and a solar charger? Someone can build it for you—or you can print it yourself!”

Most people, and teenagers in particular, go to great lengths to customize and individualize their smartphones. Wallpapers and ringtones are the first to be tweaked. Now Nokia has opened up their platform for more radical and empowering customizations.

A bold move on their part. And a brilliant one.
