Maybe you welcome the challenge of building your own phone. Here’s a way: MAKERphone is an educational DIY mobile phone kit designed to help you (and the kids) learn more about & explore electronics and programming. Once you complete the build, you’ve got a fully functional mobile phone that you can code yourself, including games like space invaders, pong, or snake. You can build apps —like a custom media player that only plays cat videos. Plus, you can build programs in Arduino and create lines of code in Python. Once you get it all sorted, you can make phone calls, too. A funded Kickstarter.
