Modular Phones is a Passe, Self-Assembling Phone could be the Next Big Thing



What is the next big technological revolution in the smartphone industry? Is it the modular smartphone that you can build yourself? Well, modular smartphones are definitely fancy, but we have something else which might just be the thing of the future. Yes, the next big thing in the smartphone industry are the self-assembling smartphones. Sounds insane right?

Self-Assembly Lab at MIT has come up with a cell phone that puts itself together. This is definitely going to be a process that has the potential to revolutionalize how handsets are made. So the question here is, how is this even possible? Interestingly, there are no complex procedures to follow here. It is reported that, in the Lab’s process, all the phone parts are put inside a cement mixer like a tumbler. Then they are tossed around until the parts click together into the phones. Surprisingly, depending on the speed of the rotating tumbler, it can take upto a minute or more. Check out the video below –

As easy as it may sound, there are a lot of complex ingredients involved to make it possible. First of all, the speed of the rotating tumbler has to be fast enough so that the components are tossed around. But if it is too fast then you will end up with a bunch of broken cell phone parts. Each component has a lock-and-key mechanism that keeps the components held together and made sure that wrong components are not attached to each other. And there is an adhesive that makes the component stick together like Velcro. Even magnets of varying polarity can be used here.

If this is implemented on a commercial level, then it will definitely make the job easier for the manufacturers. However, it has to be completely perfect before it is implemented on that level. Also, it will eliminate the jobs thus affecting human labour. With that being said, the future of this technology is bright. Users will have complete freedom here and they can literally come up with any design they want. So let’s see how it works out on a longer run as curently it is still in early stages of development. Stay tune for more info on this.
