Developed by the company’s R&D department in China, the Eco-Mobius would allow users to switch out and upgrade individual hardware components. For instance, if you are going to a wedding and would like to shoot sharper, higher-resolution photos. You could then detach your, say, standard 8-megapixel phonecamera lens for a 13-megapixel one.
