We know that many of you guys out there are looking forward to Project Ara being made a reality. That will be taking place in 2015 according to Google, but what sort of components could you buy upon its launch, and where would you buy them? Well it seems that Google has a plan on setting up a separate marketplace in which Project Ara’s components would be sold at.
This was revealed by Google’s Paul Eremenko who was speaking during a recent interview at Purdue University. According to Eremenko, Google will be basing Project Ara’s marketplace on the Google Play Store. “The Ara MDK is free and open and available to everybody, so everybody could create a module per the specifications of the developer’s kit and put it in the Ara module marketplace, which is analogous to the Google Play store, and sell directly to consumers.” Read full post →Project Ara To Get Its Own Dedicated Marketplace

This is great for those who are constantly on the lookout for eclipses – maybe you want to photograph it, or maybe you just want to mark it down on your calendar.
