Motorola announced that it will be launching a partnership with the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to encourage the development of Moto Mods, which are accessories that can give one’s Motorola phone a variety of functions, from movie projector to speaker.
The partnership will be starting a “Moto Mods Developer Contest”. To compete, a developer would have to submit a description of the Mod and how it will be used, and finalists will be selected by a group of Motorola industry leaders. Prizes include the Moto Mod Developer Kit, the Moto Z phone, and a trip to Chicago for the developer to share their idea with the Moto Mods executive development team.
This competition is intended help Motorola find the best Moto Mod ideas out there; as it said in its blog, “We know we can’t come up with every Moto Mods idea on our own, and real innovation doesn’t just happen behind closed doors.”
The competition begins today and ends on January 1, 2017. If you want to learn more, click here.
