Modularity Paves Way for Waste-Reducing Consumerism
If you don't need a gizmo anymore, don't just toss it, rebuild it
Nascent Objects doesn’t really sell products; it sells parts pre-assembled into products that you can easily take apart to build new ones. For example, you can buy a baby monitor that once your baby outgrows, you can reassemble into a digital camera.
This modularity means your tech can potentially never run out of uses, meaning money saved and technology not ending up in the trash. This waste-reducing benefit of modularity is not as discussed as personalization but it could just as important. Nascent Objects reminds us of Google’s Project Aura for other devices besides the smartphone.
