Motorola’s Project Ara plan to turn the mobile market on its head by offering a modular smartphone just took one step closer to reality to today with the announcement of a deal with specialist production company 3D Systems.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The agreement, announced today, means that 3D Systems will “create a continuous high-speed 3D printing production platform and fulfilment system in support of Motorola’s Project Ara”.
As part of the deal, the company has also agreed to develop “multi-material printing capabilities including conductive and functional materials” so that it will be able to make all of the components required for a fully functioning, but modular, smartphone.
