Project Ara

Consumer Guide / Design / Tech

Designboom reported recently that Motorola's technology and projects group had launched a project for modular smartphones. 

It's the android of hardware, if you will.

The combo works with an endoskeleton and modules. The skeleton is obviously the frame that holds the modules; each module is a part– a processor, a screen or a keyboard. Your phone can now look like you want it to look and perform like you want it to perform.

All against electronic waste!

Phoneblocks by Motorola are now here. Check out their blog.
