Modu – The Core of a Mobile Phone
Currently, users have one phone which they use for everything but there are times when a user could benefit from a phone customized to the activity – say a ruggedized phone for outdoor applications, or a business phone for the office, or a gaming phone for play. The Modu module can fit inside a larger case creating a customized phone for each application. The screen and battery are also adaptable to the application.
The unit weighs than less than 1.5 ounces and is smaller than an iPod Nano. You can see a video of the developers describing the modu on YouTube. The mobile phone is growing not only in subscribers but also in functionality. Breaking it down into a set of standard components positions itself for use in virtual instrumentation applications.
