Project ARA

It's been a while since I've posted anything about Project ARA... it's still moving along -- according to a live presentation this morning, they will be shipping kits later this month. It's still in the development stage, but could be VERY interesting for PicoP

From Spectrum from 12/14
To make the most of its modular design, Ara will run a specialized version of the newly released Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, which will allow for “hot swapping” of modules. With the exception of the screen and the application processor module, users will be able to remove a module and replace it with another without rebooting the phone. Want to use an Ara phone to share photos with friends? Remove the camera, plug in a pico-projector module, and start the show without ever powering down.
