TECHNOLOGY: PROJECT ARA IS COMING / by Sukari Keetin

Project Ara is a new modular computing platform, allowing devices to be customized for style and function. Imagine the possibilities.

"Google has just uploaded another teaser of Ara and all the possibilities that a modular phone can bring. Choose your high-res camera, add a louder speaker, swap in a better battery. Some of the modules shown off include a loudspeaker, an e-ink screen displaying the weather, an array of microphones, a touch-sensitive square that seems to hail an Uber (and can probably be customized to do any number of things), and of course the camera. I can't wait to get this device in my hands."
