Since we all know that the future of portable communication is wearable, and eventually embedded, technology; I want to show you the easiest possible use there is for those old phones we will have millions of.
Yes, the ever so humble -yet useful- paperweight! (Applause! Wild cheering from the audience! No? Ok then, how about polite clapping? Alright, alright. I'll settle for quiet heart beats and suppressed yawns.)
So, it's not so glamorous. But Instructables is about making things work, and this works!
This goes for a lot of things, but we've got to think about what's going to happen to all these phones (Billions!) when we move on to the next big thing. I don't want all that useful technology going in a landfill and causing even more pollution. While this paticular instructable may be a bit, well, dumb; I hope it gives you some inspiration about what your going to do with your old devices.
Don't throw them away! Figure out a new use for them!
