One of the 100 prototypes that Yezz has proposed for Google’s Project Ara is a solar panel in the shape of a cellphone cover: it both protects the display and transforms solar energy to power the phone.

Another idea for a cellphone cover is one that turns into an alternative display when you open it. This secondary display would show notifications and reminders.

Another idea for a module is a video-game controller that would connect to your phone by snapping it into one of the slots in the back of the device.
