    Transform the Smartphone Challenge winners: DigiFrame and MACAY TrueSound HiFi

    “Digiframe” – Andrius Valentukonis and Ilja Laurs
    An always on sticky note that’s synced to your Moto Z, this concept instantly provides the info you need at a glance. From weather forecasts and traffic updates to public transit schedules and your calendar, endless content allows you to personalize your smartphone. Digiframe is powered by open web standards for third party widget developers, and because it’s magnetic, you can put it on the refrigerator and leave notes or a to-do list for yourself, family or roommates.
    “MACAY TrueSound HiFi” – Abigail Brown and Yousef Alsayid
    MACAY TrueSound HiFi interfaces with a digital-to-analog converter and analog-to-digital converter to provide audio input and output for your Moto Z. This winning concept from the New York hackathon is great for musicians and audiophiles, allowing them to go beyond the standard headphone jack with HiDef audio ports typically found in recording studios and expensive speaker systems that transmit audio to applicable headphones/speakers.
    These teams are eligible to receive up to $1 million in investment funding from Lenovo Capital to bring their Moto Mods to market.

    Also announced - The New Moto Mods Accelerator Program

    his program combines the resources of our existing developer portal with a more hands-on process to help guide participants from start to finish. We will help match make program participants with partners who specialize in engineering and design and can help facilitate bringing their idea to market. Concepts that complete the Moto Mods Accelerator Program will receive eventual distribution at Verizon.
    Ultimate Wireless Charging

    “Ultimate Wireless Charging” – Michael Paukert
    This “always on” concept offers the convenience of wireless charging, an infrared (IR) remote control and the look of a Style Shell all in one package.

    “Keyboard” – Liangchen Chen and Hongbin Du
    With a QWERTY slider keyboard, as well as a screen that can be tilted up to 45 degrees, this concept allows you to type long messages and edit documents on the go with ease.

    “Edge” – Tom Kruszczynski
    It’s hard not to get distracted by our smartphones with the abundance of info being sent to them daily. Edge allows you to see notifications around the edge of your Moto Z before touching or viewing the display. Easily assign notifications for specific contacts, social networks and email accounts with the color and pattern of your choice.
    Solar Z Charger with Battery

    “Solar Z Charger with Battery” – Ivan Milutinovic
    Whether you’re outside and away from a power source or always on the go, the Solar Z Charger with Battery allows you to wirelessly charge your Moto Z using the sun’s rays. This winning concept from our San Francisco hackathon requires no cords or software while taking up minimal space in your pocket or backpack with a thin design.

    The DigiFrameMod looks amazing! Not sure I could justify that cost though.

    As far as the "Ultimate Wireless Charging" I can see why a Force or Play owner might want it, but my regular Moto Z with the Incipio Wireless battery isn't much thicker.

    Nice. Can't wait to see HiFi mid. Hope the price is "reasonable" I'm expecting it at 80, but shouldn't be over 100.
