Announcing the Transform the Smartphone Challenge!



Reimagine what a phone can do

Indiegogo is thrilled to announce we’re collaborating with Motorola to give our campaigners the tools and connections to truly transform the smartphone.

As part of our Transform the Smartphone Challenge, you have the chance to contribute to the creation of the next generation of Moto Mods. Here’s how:

Moto Mods™ are like apps that you’d download for your phone, but for hardware instead. They can be just about anything you can dream up: a film projector, top-of-the-line speaker, blood pressure monitor, you name it. And we want to add your vision to that list.

You can flex your imaginations and build your own Moto Mod™ with features that have never existed for smartphones before.

Today through January 31st, 2016, enter our Transform the Smartphone Challenge. Share your best Moto Mods  idea for a chance to win a Moto Mods Development Kit™ (MDK) and a Moto Z (a $1,000 value) to get started on your prototype.  Once you have a prototype of your Moto Mod, you’ll launch a campaign on Indiegogo to fund its development. Indiegogo experts will guide you in your crowdfunding campaign strategy, creation and promotion. Campaigners with the top concepts will have a chance to win a trip to Chicago and meet with our Moto Mods executive development team, where they’ll discuss how to bring their idea to life.  

Check out this page for more info about the program, including the Official Terms and Conditions. Then, submit your idea for a chance to turn your Moto Mods dream into reality.

You can also participate in a Mod the Future hackathon in December 2016 (New York) and January 2017 (San Francisco), giving you the chance build a Moto Mod prototype with in-person help from the pros. Get feedback in real-time on your hardware design and crowdfunding strategy.

Together, we’ll help build and fund your project.
