Google releases Project Ara MDK

Google has released the Module Developers Kit for Project Ara.

The Module Developers Kit (MDK) defines the Ara platform for module developers and provides reference implementations for various design features. The Ara platform consists of an on-device packet-switched data network based on the MIPI UniPro protocol stack, a flexible power bus, and an elegant industrial design that mechanically unites the modules with an endoskeleton. Throughout 2014, the Project Ara team will be working on a series of alpha and beta MDK releases. We welcome developer input to the MDK: either through the Ara Module Developers mailing list/forum or at one of the series of Developers Conferences.

These phones will be crazy flexible in their design – and they look pretty good too. I don’t know if it’ll be a small niche or a runaway success, but I definitely appreciate them for trying to do something different.
