Module developers, this is for you.  

Since DevCon2 in January, at events such as MWC, and others, we’ve seen lots of enthusiasm from Ara module developers. That’s awesome!  

This post is intended to encourage you to reach out to us on
ara-dev@google.com if you are ready to commit to having your module(s) available for our market pilot in Puerto Rico later this year. In the next few months, we’d like to work closely with you to maximize the success of your efforts and the pilot.  We are interested in engaging at all different levels, from individual module makers to mobile OEMs developing complete module bundles. 

The Project Ara team here at ATAP remains committed to developing, manufacturing, and distributing the endoskeleton while working with you the module developers to kickstart the Ara module ecosystem. As well, we will continue to provide guidelines and agreements intended to ensure the quality and performance of individual modules made for the Ara ecosystem as a whole.  

In the meantime, we're heads down working on the next design spiral and planning for the market pilot.  We’ve added a few folks to the team that will help us prepare.  You’ll meet them at the next Ara DevCon.  Stay tuned!

“Special Forces” Innovation: How DARPA and Google Attack Problems

Regina Dugan is visiting +Columbia Business School, +NYU Stern School of Business, +Wharton School, +Harvard Business School and +Stanford Graduate School of Business to talk to business school students and enlist them in advancing breakthrough innovations. 

The “Special Forces” model of innovation that Regina wrote about in this Harvard Business Review article (link below) has the potential to transform industries and organizations. For DARPA it has yielded more than half a century of disruptive advances -- ARPANet, miniaturized GPS, stealth technologies, UAVs, and material science to name a few. At Google ATAP, the model is proving to yield similar disruptions in the mobile industry.

Looking at this, I'm reminded of nothing so much as the "Tom Swift" computer proselytized by Lee Felsenstein and described in Steven Levy's "Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution" - with the idea of an infinitely extendable and hackable hardware platform.

ATAP's innovation strategy is characterized by ambitious goals, time limits, and temporary project teams.  So, after two fast-paced years in ATAP, and many technical successes, the Tango team is transitioning from ATAP to a new home within Google.  We're excited about the continued commitment to developing the technology for our users  -- we wish our fellow pirates fair winds and following seas.

While we have your attention, we'd also like to give a shout out to the developers who have been developing apps using the Project Tango Development Kit. We continue to be committed to moving the technology forward with your help and appreciate your feedback as the platform evolves.

I'd like to buy that now. Why start in Puerto Rico only? And why exclude a whole different target group? Yes, I've been owning the Galaxy S5 for over a year, I got it on release date. Yes, on the long run, from owning a premium phone I want to switch to Ara because it makes more sense. The disadvantage in processing power will be weighed up by advantages in smaller ROMs and less bloatware. Please don't only target the people who currently don't have a smartphone especially since there are a lot more things to consider. Many won't get an Android smartphone over privacy concerns towards Google (or any big company for that matter). So Android Phone owners are another good consumer group to target because they don't have those concerns.

+Chuck Smart I believe it would be easier to design a module with two cameras and different perspectives (to make 3d) than to snap several cameras on top of eachother. still, it should be possible as long as is a module.

And i dont doubt there will be someone out there with a module that lets you snap a double module, like, giving you more space for more modules.

We'll have to wait and see.

Why would you want to downgrade an ARA phone platform to run windows? A emulator module could probably be an option to run older software that requires Windows. But its much easier to use newer software. A better option is to emulate windows in  the cloud as a SAAS then display on existing phone.

Spotlight Stories are made for mobile. But what would happen if we took #duet, the latest Spotlight Story, and played it on one of the largest screens in the world? Glen Keane, the former Disney director, animator and creator of #duet shares what it was like to see his film go from the palm of his hand to the big screens of Times Square. Check it out.
