Google will start teaching people how to build phones, Motorola’s Project Ara lives one

Motorola sent a wave of excitement when they announce project Ara which allows people to add latest components to their smartphones, keeping the hardware as up-to-date as is the software. When Google announced its plans to sell Motorola to Lenovo there were concerns around this project (though Google was keeping it).

Now Google has announced its plans for the project. The Android maker will be organizing the first Ara Developers’ Conference, to be held April 15-16, 2014.

Google’s “Advanced Technology and Projects” page tells more about the event, “The Developers’ Conference will be held online, with a live webstream and interactive Q&A capability. A limited number of participants will be able to attend in person at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.”

Given it’s ‘online’ nature more people will be able to participate in the event and those who are around can always get on-to-one experience.

It’s really an exciting development.
