Project Ara is here, and its going to rock your world.
This mobile device from Google has shown us what is possible with a modular device, and its actually not just a phone but something entirely.
Project Ara is a new modular computing platform, allowing devices to be customized for style and function. Choose your high-res camera, add a louder speaker, swap in a better battery. Imagine the possibilities. And we’re releasing a developer kit with device later this year. Check for updates here: g.co/ara and follow us on twitter @ProjectAra
With a modular device, its no wonder that some people are already going nuts. With this, always think outside the box. How about a device that functions as a mobile camera - with high-resolution lens. No need for an external speaker, snap-in 1-2-3-4? speaker modules? How about extended batteries. An additional screen at the back? A stand? A pill-box? So much can already be seen on the teaser video.
As announced, "Developer kits for Ara will be shipping later this year, and a consumer version is coming in 2017." - its coming, and its a glorious one.
