One of the highlight features of Moto’s Z phones is their modularity, letting you slap on different accessories like a camera grip or a projector. Moto also released a Mod Development Kit so that others can create modules for its Z phones, and Moto has even hosted events to aid in Mod creation. This week, the company shared some of the Mods that’ve come out of these events.
Moto has highlighted five Mods that were made at recent events in Buenos Aires and San Francisco. Those include:
Moto is hosting more events in the near future, including one in Shenzhen, China in March. Winners are these events will be entered into Moto’s Transform the Smartphone Challenge campaign on Indiegogo, which will give lucky winners the chance to have their Mod distributed by Moto and Verizon.
In other Moto Mod news, a company named Imagine Tech has launched a new Mod on Indiegogo. It’s called the Edge, and includes a ring of LEDs that’ll light up around the entire outer edge of the Moto Z when you get notifications.
The Edge can be tweaked with different colors and patterns for different types of notifications.
There are two versions of the Edge. The Edge Force includes a 2000mAh battery that can be used to recharge your Moto Z on the go, while the Edge Air adds wireless charging functionality to your phone.
Both Edge Mods are estimated to begin shipping in July 2017. While the $49 Early Bird tier is already sold out, you can get one for $55 as of this writing.
