Repurposing the phone for survival (working title)

Team Members

Heath Bunting, Farida Vis, Stefania Bercu, Daniel Heuser Prestes, Johannes Söderberg, Nat Tkacz, Lonneke van der Velden

Research Questions

Post-apocalyptic branding: Can we rank phones according to their survival capacity?

Deflationary economy: Can the phones be disassembled and can different phones be recomposed? What is the level of 'break-ability' of different kind of phones and are their parts interchangeable?

Methodology

Method:
Get the phones
Use a guide (The Art of Manliness)
Break them
Go outside and look at how the environment presents itself to see what kind of survival techniques we need.

Preliminary Findings

Break-ability of the phones:

Sony does better than motorola.

Sony open:

Motorola still needed to be smashed:

The compas doesn't work

The second compas does work: it is pointing out North:

Recommendations:

There are many unused parts:

Suggestion for further research: the extent to which the phone lends itself for further inventio.
