I’m sure most of you have heard about PhoneBloks, it was a genius idea that went viral. The concept was to keep your phone for a decade and easily replace what’s inside your phone instead. So you’d end up buying piece upgrades like a better camera, more battery life or a faster processor rather than a new phone.
The sad part about the project was it was just a concept and that it wasn’t backed up by a huge company. Project Ara however, is. It’s a concept by Motorla very similar to PhoneBloks. An open based modular smartphone platform.
Motorola says they’ve been working secretly on this project for over a year and it gets better, they’ve teamed up with PhoneBloks to make the phone a reality. So to summarise, I’m super excited to see this phone one day in stores, it just has so much potential. Imagine all the different combos you can have with this device.
You’ll really understand the concept when you watch the video below:
