A dreamer's dream: this modular smartphone concept can be fully exchanged, piece by piece
Of course, whenever a high-profile tech ideas get thrown around in the vast space that is the Internet, 3D artists and designers will often pick up on it and inject their own ideas into the conversation, through concept drawings and renders. Out of fandom, out of passion, and for the challenge of doing it, we suppose.
So, talented designer Hege has decided to imagine a modular smartphone of his own — dubbed THOR, it's a device that can be fully disassembled and put together with parts, combined to the user's taste. Metal connectors, slide-in rails, and a number of bolts are what makes sure that the different components will find their place securely and the suggested modules include a fingerprint scanner, a dual-flash camera, different-styled backs, et cetera. While this is just a concept, it has certainly taken some ideas from the yet unreleased Project Ara. We wouldn't be surprised if the first-ever fully modular phone to become commercially available ends up employing similar ways to keep its parts together.
