Seeing a cracked iPhone screen or a stray Home button usually means you’re in for a few tears and probably a hefty repair or replacement bill. Twice Used, a project striving for funding on Kickstarter, turns that feeling on its head by repurposing busted iPhone parts into new items ranging from wearable accessories to home decor.

A half dozen busted glass iPhone back panels turns into a eye-catching picture frame, a handful of abandoned Home buttons becomes a stylish bracelet, and a hundred cracked screens line up to become a conversation-starting coffee table. It’s an interesting idea to be sure, and given that there is likely no shortage of mishandled iPhones to salvage piece from, it’s a business that could catch on.

If you pledge to the Twice Used Kickstarter campaign your goods should be arriving between December of this year and February of 2014 — if the project reaches its US$10,000 goal, that is.

Kickstarter campaign hopes to give busted iPhones a second life as practical decor originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Tue, 26 Nov 2013 16:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
