It’s really amazing how today’s technology enables us to build complex gadgets on our own. Just take a look at Instructables member Ye Xiaobo’s fully functioning cell phone. It can send and receive phone calls and text messages, and it even has a touchscreen. How it looks – and costs – is another thing altogether.

The phone is based on the Arduino Uno. It has a 2.8″ TFT Touch Shield for a screen, a GPRS Shield to connect to GSM and GPRS networks, a rechargeable Li-ion battery and a 3D printed housing.

Put your MacGyver jacket on and head to Instructables to find out how to make your own cell phone. Xiaobo also put together a one-stop parts list on Seeed. Here’s the funny part: the phone will cost you $173.10 (USD) to build, excluding the cost of printing the housing. Oh, and then you need to pay for phone service.
