In the future, your phone won’t be a single chunk of gadgetry.
It’ll be a collection of things that you can click together into phones of different sizes depending on how you’re feeling, what you’re wearing and what you plan to do. It’ll have every sensor under the sun, but only if you decide to add them, and it’ll be permanently future-proof, because adding a new processor will be as simple as slotting in a SIM card.
Sounds like a fairy tale, doesn’t it? But it’s happening. Very soon in fact. Google’s Project Ara aims to usher in a brave new world of modular smartphones, with the sales of the first generation of handsets due in Puerta Rico later this year.
