OpenMoko, Open Case

By on March 17th, 2008 in blog


Popular Mechanics and The Globe and Mail report on the possibility of using 3D print technology to custom build cases for the OpenMoko Linux touchscreen. The device is not yet available, but OpenMoko has set precedents by releasing all of their software source code – and now the designs for the case too! The article suggests that 3D print owners can reverse-engineer the case design and be able to produce replacement cases.
