To anyone following Project Ara over the past few months, this is welcome news. It’s welcoming because this means that the project is getting closer and closer to a possible end.
If you haven’t been following, Project Ara is the brainchild of ATAP, a Skunkworks division of Google. Ara is built on the idea of a modular phone, in that you, the individual, can swap out the actual hardware pieces of the phone: camera, memory, battery, processor, the lot.
Now back to topic at hand. Project Ara is holding 3 developers conferences throughout 2014. The first is being held April 15-16. The focus will be on the MDK, the Module Developers Kit. If you’d like to get involved and possibly attend, you can register here on their main page.
Not a developer? Don’t worry, neither am I. You can participate in the development by joining up with the dscout program, which can be found on their main page.
Have a thought on this? Want to join up and see where this is heading? Keep following us for more details as they come.
