This only has 57k out of the 435k needed. Just think about how awesome this would be!

So from skimming the comments, it has been made clear that people kind of think this idea is, well, stupid. Or at least needs to be updated. But until then, please check out this: www.phonebloks.com/ . There is a video on the very first page, so just watch that and please reply to this comment what you think about it. I personally would love it, because of all the possibilities of customization. Thanks

I realise the technology is still in infancy, but here's just a small list of reasons why I'm not funding this.

I wouldn't buy them because I'd loose them in about 2.3 hrs after purchasing them.

Because if you own an iphone or ipod touch you can buy a set of bluetooth headphones for like $70 and have 100 times the songs at your disposal, and longer playtime.

It's not being funded because, while it is a neat concept, there are better solutions available for less money.

How does one make advances in technology if he says "Well there's no need, we already have better **** ." Give the concept time, by 2025 I'm sure wireless music devices will be standard.

When I was in 8th grade I came up with the idea for something like this on the ride to school one day. I didn't have the know-how in order to make it happen, so I tossed it aside. A few years later they came out with wireless headphones, and I felt kind of proud for thinking of it before it ever was made.

This has happened to me quite a few times actually. Don't be surprised if in the next few years someone invents a pressure-activated cat bed with a built in heater. I drew up some schematics for it on some notebook paper, but alas am a poor 19 year old with no means to fund this.

I feel like this would be extremely annoying while eating.

From what i read, you can pause the whole thing, but you can't just turn that biting thing off. I might be wrong, but that is what i understood. And i like to listen to music when i eat, so that's a bit problematic.

i can see this having lots of issues.

I just want wireless earbuds. Something that I could plug into my ipod and probably has a battery in it, but then it would be radio to the head phones. Does anything know if something like that exists or could exist?

How am I ever going to fill that?!
