Motorola‘s line of MotoMods has been currently one of the best iterations of what a modular device should be, with accessories ranging from external battery packs, to 360-degree cameras, to even a camera mount. Now, the company is adding more accessories to the lineup, including a full keyboard attachment.
The keyboard isn’t actually made by Motorola. In fact, the device was first developed by a third-party company called Livermorium, which was the winner of Motorola and Indiegogo’s Transform the Smartphone challenge. Both Motorola and Livermorium worked together to create a final product, and now they’re at CES 2018 showing off just that.
The Slider Keyboard mod attaches to the back of a MotoMod-capable device, and when it slides out, it showcases a full physical keyboard alongside tilting up the screen at a 60-degree angle in landscape orientation.
The keyboard attachment isn’t the only thing Motorola is displaying, however. They also showcased the Lenovo Vital MotoMod, which measures heart rate, respiratory rate, Pulse Ox, core body temperature, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure from your finger. The Vital Mod is the most expensive one to date, coming in at $395, and will be coming out in April.
The Slider Keyboard will be coming out within the next month or two, for a retail price of $99.
