According to Motorola, the Livermorium Slider Keyboard Moto Mod will be available for $99 Dollars later this winter (in a month or two) and the Lenovo Vital Moto Mod will arrive in April for $395.

The second mod that Motorola introduced at the CES 2018 event was made by Livermorium - which won Motorola's "transform the smartphone" challenge past year. We have seen a variety of Moto Mods including the Hasselblad camera attachment and the recent Moto Gamepad. "Taking this moto mod from the Indiegogo campaign through our Accelerator Program is only the beginning as we look ahead to bringing future innovations to market", Motorola announced via a blog post.

Moto, the sub-brand of Lenovo, is putting all its efforts in expanding its Moto Mods portfolio.

The Livermorium Slider Keyboard provides users with a full QWERTY keyboard, and a screen which can tilt upwards 60-degrees. This mod enables users to track five key vital signs - heart rate, respiratory rate, Pulse Ox, core body temperature and systolic, and diastolic blood pressure. The former is called Slider Keyboard Moto Mod that's developed by Livermorium, whereas, the latter is called Vital Moto Mod that's developed by Lenovo. And at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, Motorola took the wraps off new Moto Mods for the Moto Z series: A keyboard mod and a biometric mod. All this can be measured by simply putting your finger on the sensor at the back of the Mod.

In conjunction with Lenovo, Motorola has also unveiled a US$395 health tracker attachment. Will you be slapping this mod on your Moto Z phone? Under the "Transform the Smartphone Challenge", Motorola, Lenovo and Verizon teamed up with Indiegogo to give developers the chance to create new Moto Mods.

For more information about Moto Mods you could download the Moto Z Market app from the Play Store, but judging by the 2-star rating you might be better off avoiding it.
