Thus he created a dual analog controller concept for the Project Ara, that would make it a very solid PS Vita and Nintendo DS rival. Typically, the device will get attachments like extra storage, better CPU, more RAM or a better camera sensor.

We get a bunch of shoulder buttons, a D Pad, analog controls and action buttons. The product even has a cool name: Flippypad, a concept controller module for Project Ara phone. It can easily snap into the large back modules and allows for gaming on the go. It also serves as a screen protector while on the road. It could also boost up battery a bit.
And this is only the beginning of the modular handset’s gaming potential.
