In August of last year, Project Ara not only got a new logo, but it was also revealed that there wouldn’t be electropermanent magnets installed in the devices any longer.
Now, on the final day of Google I/O, a pretty important update has finally landed. Google has revealed that the first Developer Edition of Project Ara will begin shipping to developers beginning later in 2016. What’s more, developers can register their interest in developing an Ara module with Google right now.
Google also has plans to launch a consumer-ready version of Project Ara in 2017.
Google included a video with its announcements that shows a variety of different modules for the project and the new features that those modules can bring. Swapping modules looks like it’s going to be pretty quick and easy, too.
Are you excited for Project Ara?
