Experimental MotoMods could add docking station support and better camera
The Lenovo Tech World presentation showed off a number of MotoMod accessories that should be ready to launch alongside or soon after the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. These include an attachable DLP projector and a stereo speaker system with internal secondary battery packs. More, however, are apparently on the way and still under development.
The OneCompute Motomod will connect wirelessly to a small docking port to provide full-size HDMI and USB ports for connecting external displays and keyboards. Lenovo claims that its "KISS" wireless technology will have lower latency compared to MHL for mice and keyboard. Better multi-tasking will also be supported as users can display two large windows or apps simultaneously and copy and paste between them.
And many more ...
Additional prototypes include a MirrorMod that mirrors the current content on the front of the display and the HyperChargeMod to increase performance and decrease loading times. The Adventure Mod accessory will allow for an air- and water-tight chassis.
The 16-pin connector was designed to be versatile and Lenovo will be launching a developer program for users to create their own MotoMods. The winning design will receive a $1 million USD prize.
