Seeed Studio poses this question to you: how would you #rethinkphone? Does your new take on the phone involve multi-person video conferencing? Is it completely silent but has smell? Is it a one-way device? Is it just for human beings? Stretch your imagination and flex your cortex for our first-ever Phone Contest.

We want you to imagine new possibilities for phones. Use your phone to create anything you like, and share your story with the Instructables Community. Recontextualize what a phone could be, or use it at the core of a larger build.  

Prizes include a Canon T5 Kit, Pebble Time, Polaroid Cubes, and more. Winners will also receive the to-be-released Seeed Studio RePhone Kits. These are awesome new kits that can be used to create your own phone. Enter your ideas and don't forget to share your projects on social media with the hashtag #rethinkphone. Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you make!

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Aug 3, 2015 and Sep 7, 2015 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Phone Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
