Google developing “Ara” modular smart-phone

Google is jumping into its next futuristic hardware project.

This time it’s a modular smartphone dubbed “Project Ara” that can be customized by swapping out individual pieces of hardware.

The company previewed the very early-stage project at a developer event in Santa Clara, California, this week.

The idea is to allow smartphone owners to customize and update their phones on their own — creating a device that lasts longer than current smartphones.

Google said the first version of the phone will likely be available in 20-15.

Though the Company didn’t mention a sale price, it said the devices would cost anywhere from 50 to 500 dollars to manufacture, depending on the model.
