For those of you who have been following Project Ara, Google’s attempt to bring modular devices to the smartphone market, now is the time to have all of your questions answered. Google started a live stream of Project Ara’s first developers conference a few hours ago, which you can check out on its official website.
Excited about modular smartphones? So is Google, which is hosting its second Project Ara Developer Conference today in California. The Ara project is designed to provide a consumer-ready platform for modular smartphone tech, letting users buy and swap out individual components like cameras, processors and sensors in configurations of their choosing. Remember, as you watch this, that Project Ara was pegged for a release date of January 2015, with a launch price tag of $50 for a base unit, which is designed to essentially just pave the way for modular components from third-party devs and manufacturers.
