Here is my idea: a case with a range finder/sensor or magnetic switch incorporated; a sort of support with usb charger incorporated attached to a frame door. An Arduino app installed on the RePhone that will be an ALARM and it will work like this: you go out from home and you place the RePhone on the door frame support and start the alarm app; after 5 sec. the alarm is active and if the door will be opened the alarm is sending a SMS to a predefined number on the app. A camera will be a nice addition to the case to snap a photo of the intruder …-Catalin Anesia (Winner of Oct.27th)

Our beautiful English Springer Spaniel is almost 14 years old (born just after 9/11). He doesn’t see or hear so well. I’d like to monitor his position and his movements (an indicator he’s OK or in trouble) to be able to help him in old age. A #RePhone would be great for this application! Phone is so ubiquitous here in Germany, the way to communicate. #ReThinkPhone

For the #rethinkphone#rephone win a kit contest, I came up with this：
It’s a diy phone that can be converted into a wheeled robot that can be remotely controlled. The camera can be flipped into position and the wheels removed from the back n fitted to the shafts of the motors. There are line and sensors at the bottom of the robot to facilitate autonomous patrolling as a line Follower robot as well. The whole can can be 3d printed and assembled simply. I was unable to use the supplied 3d models from thingverse but hope to solve that another way.

Special thanks to a Taiwan maker who 3D printed below white shell for RePhone.
I’ve been planning for this for a very long time, to create a mini-robot that can operate in land, water, and air. This #ReThinkPhone kit is the best way to navigate, locate, and maybe used for discovery. Hope to have one of this to start my invention.
