Motorola announces two new Moto Mods at CES 2018

From a Polaroid camera attachment to a dedicated gamepad to a wireless charging-enabled back shell Motorola has been quite steady in bringing out new Moto Mods for its Moto Z family of smartphones. On January 9, Moto introduced two new accessories which are meant to be used on the Moto smartphones: Lenovo Vital Moto Mod and Livermorium Slider Keyboard Moto Mod. One is the Lenovo Vital Moto mod which is for keeping a track of your health and other is the Livermorium Slider keyboard, which as the name suggests is a slider qwerty keyboard for your Moto Z smartphone.

Livermorium Keyboard Moto Mod gives you a full QWERTY slider keyboard and a screen that can tilt up to 60 degrees.

Lenovo Vital Moto Mod will be the most expensive among the new launch. All of these will work together to test your heart rate, oxygen level, pulse oxygen, body temperature, and both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. All this can be measured by simply putting your finger on the sensor at the back of the Mod.

What makes this Moto Mod even better is the fact that you can actually tilt the screen up to 60 degrees, making it possible to type at nearly any angle. The company behind the mod originally planned to include a 1,750mAh battery into the mod, but when they unveiled it at CES 2018, they did not mention about the battery which we are assuming will not come with the final product. However, the Vital Moto Mod is priced at $395 and will be coming in April. The product will come to market later this winter as part of Motorola's accelerator programme, for a cost of Dollars 99. The company is currently accepting applications and has said, "now through February 6, submit your idea for a chance to receive a moto z phone, Moto Mod Development Kit (MDK) and support from the Indiegogo team to launch a successful crowdfunding campaign". Well, we personally like the Slider Keyboard Moto Mod more.
