Google PhoneBloks Prototype In Action – Video
The blocks are held together with a combination of electromagnets that require power and permanent magnets that don’t need any power source. This will allow the modular bricks to stay in place even when the phone is off.
Project Ara will produce phone platforms in three different sizes that can be customized. This just goes to show how serious the team is to make this phone popular among the masses.
Hopefully it will be a reality soon and we all can have our own personally built phones with customized blocks. Let’s see how long it will take Project Ara to become reality.
