OwnFone the innovative mobile phone creation company that allows you to create your very own mobile phones juts the way you need them, has taken to Kickstarter to help make the leap worldwide.
Originally launched in the UK, OwnFone has a UK customers base and provides custom mobile phone solutions for any age group and is now hoping to take their idea to a global scale.
OwnFone is specifically a 2G voice-only mobile phone, if you back the Kickstarter campaign and select an OwnFone or PrintFone Development Kit as a reward, the handsets that you’ll receive will be unlocked and SIM free. Its creators explain a little more about the design :
“OwnFone is the world’s first 2D/3D printed mobile phone that calls the numbers you need. It’s small, light and infinitely customizable! Using it couldn’t be simpler! There’s no screen, text or internet. Simply press a Word or Image button to make a call. You can have 3D buttons too.. like Braille and Raised Text. You can even draw your own buttons!
OwnFone can be printed with up to twenty two Word, Image or 3D buttons or a full numerical keypad. The call buttons are pre-programmed to call the telephone numbers that you want on your phone. You can receive calls too.
It’s designed as an alternative to Smartphones, for times in life when you just need a small, simple, low value mobile phone. Use your OwnFone everyday or use it as an emergency phone when it will still make and receive calls after a year without recharging!”
