I found this broken stool in the streets of Kreuzberg. On the way home I passed by my local bike store getting the days dumped tyres. With a pair of scissors, some knots, simple weaving and 1h of my time the stool was refurbished.
It is pretty simple to repair your broken iPhone screen, there are multiple instructions about it on the web. Just google your specific type of phone. Inspired by my friend gaiageek I used these instructions and it worked really well:
I admit, it was a bit nerve wrecking and I had my repair-it-all dad with me who is more specialised in cars and was amazed himself that we could repair a smartphone. But with time, humour and the right size screwdriver we made it. It is also a good idea to consider replacing the battery as this is only a few more steps and can increase your phones value.
