Today Google will kick off its second Project Ara Module Developers Conference, unveiling the future of its mysterious hardware platform for creating modular smartphones.
Google’s Ara will someday let users piece together their smartphones like a puzzle, “precisely tailored to their functional and aesthetic preferences,” says Google. Today we should find out how long it will take for that dream to become reality.
You can watch the event, which kicks off at 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET), live right here:
We’ll be on site to cover the event both in Mountain View and New York. We expect Google to share more details on its Module Marketplace, where users will purchase smartphone parts; its “dedicated app for managing modules;” as well as the date for the project’s initial pilot launch. Stay tuned for more. You can check out the full event schedule here.
