A free, modular and educational cellphone.
The Paxo project adheres to the principles of open source, both in terms of hardware and software. That means that it gives everyone the freedom to use, study, adapt and redistribute the plans and the telephone source code (in a non-commercial context).
This free dimension of the project gives a central place to the community, which mainly helps to develop the project.Contribute
The free dimension of the project also favors modularity. Anyone can - by modifying the software and equipment made available - adapt the operation of the telephone to your needs, whatever they may be. The phone then allows everyone to design a wide variety of objects on a solid and stable base.
The free and modular dimension of the project makes it an ideal educational object. The plans and code made available allow everyone to study the operation of a modern smartphone and the modularity allows them to practice electronics and computing on a concrete case and in a wide variety of situations. The project also covers other fundamental aspects in the design of such an object, whether it is the design, the 3D modeling or printing.
The free dimension of the project also aims to raise awareness of the issues surrounding freedom in the digital world. In the same way, the modular dimension wishes to raise awareness of the problem of the repairability of electronic devices.
