While everyone's talking about Google's new self driving car, many have forgotten about all the other cool products they are working on.

The team at Project Ara are busy creating new modules before launch. If you have any smart ideas you can sign up to help develop them for their new phone.

Project Ara has been in the Google labs since 2014 and should be ready by the end of the year. Expect the new phone to be available to buy in 2017.
