Blocks & Ara

Blocks is the first modular smartwatch. On the Phonebloks blog the company has published some updates on the development of their project. Blocks was shown off at Intel’s CES booth as their modular smartwatch will use the new Intel Edison platform. The team recently met Paul Eremenko, head of Project Ara. Eremenko has apparently shown interest in building some cross-platform modules that will work across both the Blocks watch and the Google modular smartphone.

The development of modular smartwatch is progressing at a good pace. The team is putting a lot work behind the connectors between the modules, focussing on making it stronger, waterproof, and a lot more durable.

For those interested, this summer the company will organize a campaign on Kickstarter.
