    A bit of an extension from the thread here

    It seems Google has been doing good work behind the scenes with Project Ara and have kept it when they sold off Motorola and brought it into their X Labs. Apparently we should see these as early as next year and there is a big Project Ara conference coming up in April (I think)

    The video below is the first look at how things are coming along, safe to say that as usual Google really are pushing the envelope.

    Interviewer is such a DOUCHE
    Really needs excellent battery to be successful..
    Those small modules, i can't see them giving a lot of battery life if you lose one every time you want to add something else..

    I've been watching this ever since phonebloks first appeared and it is such an amazing idea. You know this is why Google bought Motorolla right, then they sold it off for 1/3 what they paid for it a few weeks later without it.
