Motorola has big plans. It has stepped into the field of high technology with the goal of creating an electronic environment. The ultimate objective is to allow consumers to revamp their processors, display screens and other components at various distribution centers. 

Motorola, which is a Google-owned setup, will be working in tandem with Phonebloks on this adventure in innovation. The experts and technicians at Motorola will do their best to achieve what they set out to do. Project Ara consists of endoskeletons which are basically compartments that accommodate smart phone components with ease. These are in fact modules that fit into the “endo” structure with convenience. They can include a fuel cell or a keyboard depending upon the need of the time. 

Motorola states on its official blog (via The Verge), "Led by Motorola’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, Project Ara is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. We want to do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software: create a vibrant third-party developer ecosystem, lower the barriers to entry, increase the pace of innovation, and substantially compress development timelines. Our goal is to drive a more thoughtful, expressive, and open relationship between users, developers, and their phones. To give you the power to decide what your phone does, how it looks, where and what it’s made of, how much it costs, and how long you’ll keep it."

The sales and marketing of these modules will begin in the holiday season which is coming soon. This is an experience of custom-made smart phones which is way ahead of the Moto X Maker. Now you may play around and develop your own devices via this initiative. 

In fact, Motorola is holding a Make-a-thon to boot. It wants to put the tools of manufacturing and design in the hands of the owners of the gadgets. This is the first time in history that such a thing is actually happening. The provision of kits for the assembly of gizmos is a delightful experience that tech lovers everywhere will relish.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
