Project Ara says that its "failed drop test" comment was a joke
As it turns out, Project Ara was making a funny. A tweet disseminated today by the Google division explains that the reference to failing the drop test was a joke. The tweet also reveals that a new system for keeping the modular parts together is being tested. "It's better too," says the tweet, which ends with the hashtag #WorkingOnOurHumor.
While it is good to know that the Spiral 2 is apparently capable of surviving a drop test, we are still left with a delay in the launch of the device that was supposed to be released this year. The modular phone won't launch before 2016, and that is no joke.
Thanks for the tip!
