Build The Unexpected

Can you create a moto mod that helps people discover new ways to connect, work and entertain?

Last year, we reimagined what a smartphone can do with moto mods that snap on to turn the moto z into a super-zoom camera, boombox, projector—you name it. The Keyboard Mod was among those invented in 2016 and this year, we’re bringing it to stores. Now it’s your turn to get in front of millions of Indiegogo backers, showcase your product at Motorola HQ in Chicago, and boost your business.


Results of the 2016 challenge

$279,000 +
Raised from 2,700+ backers
Received free moto z & MDK™ kits
Enrolled in Moto Mods Accelerator
