A big major change before the first Google prototype is the EPM(electro permanent magnets), used for power saving mode, to ENDO, for a bigger space inside the modules. The evolution of development has been increased by 3D printing system, in that way the modules will have the possibility to evolve to a full colour and high resolution. Also, team developed a software for the Ara Project, called Ara Manager application, that users will have a full control over the modules, which will always run and will be launched like a built-in application. With The Ara Manager Application, users will be able to lock or unlock the modules, or to be informed about the possible issues with the modules.
The Spiral 2 prototype development start on July 2013 and promises that will be another project which could be called Spiral 3, an innovative prototype that could become reality, with more than one day battery life, a 4G LTE modules with new antennas, and could be introduced by Google in the second part of 2015.
