    Motorola Project Ara
    Gear | Projects
    Motorola is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. The design for Project Ara consists of what we call an endoskeleton (endo) and modules.  The endo is the structural frame that holds all the modules in place. A module can be anything, from a new application processor to a new display or keyboard, an extra battery, a pulse oximeter--or something not yet thought of!  So you can upgrade your processor, battery, screen, all just by plopping modular components onto an "endoskeleton" base. It' still a working prototype.

    Gear | Pet
    Interaction designer Chris Woebken dressed a dog up like a cat, complete with eye holes punched in a custom-printed mask. Using nothing more than a color inkjet printer, some light paper card stock, and a pair of scissors, Woebken pieced together the cat suit. The pattern itself came from the incredible array of 3D models hosted on a Japanese site called Raspera—this bald uakari monkey certainly has some potential for Halloween nightmares—using the program Pepakura Designer to turn his 3D model into a workable paper-craft pattern.
