I wish I had the skill to do this with my Nokia N800. Would be beautiful that there would be somekind of joined Nokia/Lego Mindstorms project. Creating simple building blocks with product API’s for easy interaction and connection. Changing the Nokia developing platform from software to also Hardware. I really think this would be smart way to go because of 3 reasons:
- Currently differentiation is hard on hardware. With such a hardware developing community alot of inspiration, knowlodge through trial and error will become available
- Connected devices have tremendous design challenges with big screens, keyboards, touchscreens, etc. Also here the community might help solve several o these issues.
- Create new non exsting product categories. Let the community create their own Blue Ocean product.
If Nokia is listening I have some cool ideas about it..
