There’s a bit of a buzz around Nokia’s decision to openly release the Lumia design files for those of us who fancy a tinker (and have a 3D printer) to create our own personalised cases. It’s a nice nod back to the classic Nokia 5100 changeable covers of the 90s.
But what I really like is not necessarily the open invitation to get creative, but the opportunity to fix broken objects and let them live a little longer. Teenager Engineering were quick off the mark to release the files for replacement parts for their OP-1 users last year. This is smart thinking.
