In this video I show a prototype of the modular private smartphone, with the following parts:

· Manga screen.

· Raspberry Pi 2 B (in the next prototype the pi zero w will be used).

· Fona 2G (in the next prototype the Fona 3G will be used).

Together with Gerard we made a software to make/receive calls and read/send SMS that you can connect directly to the raspberry pi (without the need of an arduino)

The software can be downloaded from the following link:

Modular private smartphone software

The python file and the png images need to be in the same folder.

For the software to run the following commands need to be used in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install python-serial

sudo apt-get install python-tools

sudo apt-get install python-qt

sudo chmod 777 /dev/ttyAMA0

Open with the python IDLE (using python 2.7) and run the module.
