It Took Motorola Two Years to Develop Moto Mods, Reminds Developers About MDK

...

For third-party hardware developers, the Moto Mods platform creates a unique opportunity to bring a new experience to a built-in audience of Moto Z device owners. With that being said, Motorola is reminding all third-party developers (software and hardware) that made its MDK (Moto Mods Development Kit) is available for purchase in the US.

In a blog post posted to the Motorola website, the company discusses the two-year process of bringing Moto Mods to the masses. As penned by Motorola, the company had to find a perfect blend of hardware design and components to deliver a platform that worked seamlessly. Not only did the Mods have to be just right, but a lot of thought went into the Moto Z and Moto Z Force in general, weighing many factors during the time of design. 

There are a few key areas that Motorola’s engineers had to innovate in order to bring the Moto Z and Moto Mods to life. These areas include, but are not limited to, the 4G LTE antennas, battery design, AMOLED display choice, as well as the backplate material used. Interestingly, Motorola cites “bendgate” for its usage of a unique, aircraft-grade stainless steel casing. According to Motorola, the casing used on the Moto Z is, “85% stronger than our competitors.”

The entire blog is pretty enlightening in terms of the process Motorola went through to create the device. I recommend the read.

Back to the MDK, developers can design and begin to build their own Moto Mods. While it may be a bit harder for a single independent developer to launch a successful Moto Mod, it could be fun just to play with and mess around. However, if you are reading this and work for a larger company with the resources to think of, design, and create a Moto Mod, this is the perfect opportunity to get onboard.
