Pesci nello smartphone

Retroscena di Ara, lo smartphone modulare e scomponibile nato come meme da un video caricato su YouTube, implementato da Motorola/Google, poi abbandonato senza conclusione poco dopo la nascita di Alphabet:

“One of the modules that we were working on was basically like a tiny aquarium for your phone,” said the source. “It was a little tiny biome that would go inside of a module and it would have a microscope on the bottom part, and it would have live tardigrades and algae — some people call them water bears. They are the tiniest living organism. We had this idea to build a tardigrade module and we’d build a microscope with it. So you’d have this app on your phone and you could essentially look at the tardigrades up close and watch them floating around.” Brooklyn-based art, design, and technology agency Midnight Commercial conceived the idea, and was commissioned by Google to build it, demonstrating the depth of what developers could create.
