As you might know, Project Ara is an on-going effort by Google to develop modular smartphones. Frankly speaking, that idea might initially sounds like something from science fiction books but the Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects team that is in charge of the project is already coming closer to their objective judging from the recently released video update.
If that video update doesn’t satisfy your curiosity about Project Ara though, then it is time to check out the newly released Project Ara Module Development Kit (MDK) v0.10.
In general, Project Ara MDK is an 81-page technical document that provide plenty of information regarding the Ara platform and architecture. It should be very useful for developers out there that are interested to craft modules that can be supported by the platform.
The v0.10 release is apparently one of several MDKs that the team is planning to release through 2014. Ultimately, the finalized version of Project Ara MDK is expected to be ready by the end of the year. The timing of the MDK’s release certainly couldn’t be better as the first ever Project Ara Developers Conference will take place on 15 to 16 April in Mountain View, California.
To download the MDK, just head on to Project Ara’s official website.
