We were very excited when Motorola announced Project Ara last month, which could bring modular smartphones to fruition in the near future. We have an update that is making us even more excited, and that is that Motorola has entered into a multi-year development agreement with 3D Systems. 3D Systems will be the exclusive fulfillment partner for Motorola, and will manufacture 3D-printed Ara smartphone enclosures.
We still don’t have an idea of when we will see modular smartphones from Motorola and 3D Systems since they are still in the developmental stage, but it’s certainly nice to know that things are moving along. Hit the break for the full presser.
