Google shows off Project Ara for the first time

project-ara-PFTProject Ara has been taunted by Google for over a year now and at their Google I/O keynote we got our first live demonstration of the device.

If you are not already aware Project Ara is a modular smartphone with interchangeable modules that let you have full control of what is in your smartphone. Google only gave us a short demo of this device showing the phone booting up the latest version of Android. Google also showed us some modules getting swapped while the device was still on which is very impressive.

While Google seem to have made some solid progress with Project Ara the device is still likely a long way off and I wouldn’t expect to see this in stores any time soon.
