Modular computers and mobile devices that can be assembled have not yet had great development, but there have been many organizations and individuals developing them.

Smaller companies like Fartphone and Pine64 have also begun selling smartphones with components that can be easily upgraded and replaced.

Pockit is another promising modular platform.

Pockit has been in development since 2019 and until recently developer Anil Reddy said the hardware designs were being finalized, a first batch would be produced soon.

For example, the main module (Compute Module) with the brain of the Raspberry Pi 4 can be configured to be used as a handheld computer with a small screen and QWERTY keyboard or a phone or similar device.

Just add a battery block and you have a mobile device to use when you need to move.

In the demo video, Reddy also shows how Pockit can be used to control smart lights and fans via voice control simply by swapping blocks.

Some other blocks allow you to add things like HDMI or USB ports, SD card readers or even SSDs.

Pockit is more than simply a Raspberry Pi computer that can switch between use as a desktop and mobile device.

It’s exciting to think about a future where you can add or remove cameras, sensors or other devices to a smartphone by simply replacing a block.

Each module is a 3D printed block containing electronic circuitry and a universal connection system with built-in magnets that allow you to snap the hardware into place and test it.

Last year, Reddy first revealed his Pockit Project and at that time it was only equipped with Raspberry Pi 3+.

Reddy also created a web Dashboard with a user-friendly interface that helps you easily monitor and configure the system.

For an independent developer like Reddy, Pockit is truly an extremely great achievement.
