Here at Seeed, we want to facilitate a collaborative community to empower hackers, designers, and makers to help us realize new ways that the phone can interact with the world. So far the results have been amazing. The RePhone Alpha User community have made significant contributions to the Rephone user experience.
RePhone is an open source and modular phone kit. Create your own phone in minutes with the slim MODULES, accessible SOFTWARE, and customizable Phone Enclosures.
Hack anything around you, giving inanimate objects the power of cellular communication. Have a conversation with your pets, plants, toys, motorcycle helmets, robots, or drones through RePhone’s GSM and 3G functions.
RePhone is a set of tools and components that allows everyone including students, teachers, makers, hackers, geeks, artists, developers and engineers rethink, remix, redesign and remake the phone.
