Lenovo's new snap-on Moto Mods get your fingers moving

Share

Moto in its blog post says, "We worked with developers on the moto mods ecosystem in a variety of ways - a crowdfunding campaign with Indiegogo, our Accelerator Program and distribution of our Moto Mod Development Kits (MDK) to interested dev teams". This new app will let you browse all moto mods and get localized support in one app. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for more tech updates. The good news is that Motorola's Moto Mod is far from dead and to prove that, it is announcing two crowdfunded and accelerated mods that will finally hit stores sometime this year. One of the Mods, known as the Lenovo Vital Moto Mod, is health-related and gathers biometric data.

The Vital Moto Mod incorporates breakthrough blood pressure technology which accurately measures systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Irwin Gross, Executive Chairman and founder at Vital USA Inc., said, "The finger cuff blood pressure functionality and the direct integration with the cloud make it an exceptionally powerful and attractive mobile device for multiple markets". This Mod is actually the grand prize victor from the Transform the Smartphone Challenge that Motorola ran through Indiegogo. Will you be slapping this mod on your Moto Z phone? The former is called Slider Keyboard Moto Mod that's developed by Livermorium, whereas, the latter is called Vital Moto Mod that's developed by Lenovo. On attaching the mod the phone can slide up to about 60-degrees to reveal a full, backlit keyboard.

Lenovo, Motorola and Vital USA Inc. will offer demonstrations of the Vital Moto Mod during CES at the Lenovo product showcase, an invitation-only event held at the Venetian Hotel January 9-11. Its most notable Moto Mod is perhaps the game pad mode that turns any compatible Moto Z model into a Android version of the Nintendo Switch. Motorola is licensor of Moto Mods.
