Design Your Own Frankenphone

Tired of stale iPhone designs? Think you can do better? Now is your chance to prove it or just indulge your inner mad scientist. Neal Agarwal has created a Web app that lets you design your own iPhone. Much like the classic Mr. Potato Head toy, you’re given a bare-bones iPhone design to which you can add accessories like a notch, volume buttons, and cameras. Make it as serious or silly as you want, with options for a headphone jack, Mac Pro feet, googly eyes, a copter blade, and more. Rotate the iPhone to the desired side and drag an item to the iPhone to attach it. You can’t move an item once you’ve placed it; instead, click the item, click Delete in the lower-right corner, and then replace it. You can even click a Present button to see and download an Apple-esque commercial for your creation—make sure the volume is turned up. Share screenshots of your best design with us in the comments!

  1. I had a play with this yesterday, I’m impressed with how good it looks and the responsiveness. Yes, some of the possible additions are very silly indeed, and you could make it very garish indeed by using clashing colours for the various controls, guaranteeing eye-twitching from anyone you show it to. :crazy_face:
