One of the most distinctive features of Motorola’s Moto Z smartphones is their support for Moto Mods, which are modules that attach to the back of the phone to add functionality.
Motorola currently sells a few Mods including some that offer extended batteries or dedicated camera features.
But the company has also been encouraging third-party developers to create their own Moto Mods, and today Motorola has announced 10 finalists for its “Transform the Smartphone Challenge” contest.
There are crowdfunding campaigns for 12 projects on Indiegogo, including campaigns for the 10 finalists. So you can vote with your dollars on the ideas you’d like to see become real products.
Others add a bit of bling (and maybe some functionality), like the Edge Moto Mod which adds RGB LED lighting to the sides of the phone for visual notifications.
Some are a little more niche, such as module that adds the ability to measure weights, distances, light levels, and more, or a Moto Mod that turns the phone into a high-quality audio recorder with separate mic and headphone inputs, record and playback buttons, and 96 kHz/24-bit PCM audio support.
You can find the full list of finalists at Indiegogo. Which would you like to see brought to market?
