Google's Project Ara is probably the best thing that happened to mobile phones since the original iPhone. The concept of modular phone that you can build according to your needs sounds like the future. Google has invested a lot of money and effort to make Project Ara a reality and we shall see the result soon.
First Project Ara devices will begin pilot testing in Puerto Rico later this year. We do not know when they will be available to everyone, but that doesn't stop designers from dreaming up their perfect handsets. Designers at the Russian firm Lapka - a company that specializes in environmental sensors - came up with a brilliant concept of a truly eco-friendly smartphone.
In Lapka's vision, Project Ara devices could feature swappable modules that could detect air quality, carbon dioxide concentration, blood glucose, light, and your heartbeat. When working on the appearance of the phone, designers drew inspiration from high-end sneakers. From variety of different materials to unusual fabrics to vibrant colours, Lapka's version of a smartphone is, to say the least, fashionable.
