We were intrigued by the Phonebloks concept phone that teased the ability to switch out a handset’s components the way most users change ringtones, and now Motorola is putting its resources behind it. In what Motorola calls Project Ara, the advanced Technology and Products group is working with Phonebloks creator Dave Hakkens on an “endoskeleton (endo) and modules.” Announced this evening on the company blog by Paul Eremenko, the company says it’s already “done deep technical work” and is opening the process up to the community and volunteers (aka Ara Scouts, sign up here) to begin designing hardware modules. Its stated goal is to do for hardware what it says Android 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.”
Doctors are giving AIDS to CANCER. AIDS. TO CANCER. Science is effing incredible.
THIS IS AMAZING.
I don’t see why stories like this don’t get a bigger platform
Wow. You know, that seems like something so ridiculous and dangerous, but when you sit back and think about it, it’s pure genius. Cancer is a disease that takes over cells, mutates them, and basically turns them against your own body. AIDS is a disease that kills your cells. So, if you were insert AIDS into a cancer cell, it would kill it. Ugh, science is awesome.
