While the advanced technology packed into the new Apple XS and Google Pixel 3 is more than impressive, there’s still something to be said for making something with your hands and learning some new skills along the way — which is exactly what the designers of the MAKERphone have in mind for you. This DIY kit brings electrons and programming through a fully functional mobile phone that you code and assemble for yourself.

While your MAKERphone might not be able to tether in 4G, it will handle the basics like making phone calls, sending text messages, playing music, connecting to Wi-Fi, and even offering up some games to play — you can even create your own games and apps. The kit includes a box of all necessary electronic components with easy-to-follow guides and tutorials to put it all together. Don’t just buy another smartphone, get smarter by making a phone for yourself.
