Movidius provides machine vision technology, they released Myriad 2, they claim to be the industry’s first always-on vision processor. It delivers high-performance computational imaging and visual awareness in devices where every last drop of battery power counts, performing at under 1.2W of power means Myriad 2 can be deployed into tiny IoT devices such as smart cameras, drones and wearables, featuring a balance between programmable and hard wired elements, giving developers immediate access to its advanced vision processing core, while also allowing them to develop proprietary capabilities through the Myriad development platform. Movidius is being acquired by Intel, you can read more here. Movidius won the Best IoT Technology development award at IDTechEx USA 2016, you can read more here.

Lenovo Motorola Moto Z is an amazing new Smartphone, with Greybus (watch the video that I filmed with Greg Kroah-Hartman on their Greybus development for Google's discontinued Project Ara) based data and hot-swappable power pogopin docking technology on an ultra-thin Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Smartphone design, with options to dock a TI DLP Pico Projector MotoMod, a Hasselblad True Zoom Photo/Video Camera, JBL SoundBoost Speaker and the Incipio offGRID Power Pack, all MotoMods that customizes and expands the functionalities of a Smartphone. An absolutely fascinating potential evolution for the Smartphone market, Motorola is developing a potentially amazing ecosystem for future-proof MotoMods that can turn your Smartphone into a Project, into a point-and-shoot quality Camera, into an amazingly loud Speaker and that can expand its battery life easily. All these MotoMods are magnetically locked onto the back of the Moto Z. Now Motorola is also releasing the Moto Mods Development Kit to enable third parties to develop new MotoMods for the Moto Z, for example I hope someone makes an ultra-thin E Ink Mobius (flexible, plastic and non-glass) display for the back-size of the smartphone, a Kent Displays CH-LCD based notes taking back case and a LapDock Laptop Dock to use the Moto Z to power the Ultra-thin Laptop dock and desktop dock. The functionalities of Moto Z can also expand through the TurboPower fast charging USB Type C which I have used with USB Type C to SD card adapter, for example to upload videos from my SD card to YouTube. The possibilities with the Moto Z ecosystem are very, very interesting. But for these to get the attention of the consumers worldwide, I think that Lenovo/Motorola needs to lower the price of the bundles to around $599 for the phone including the Projector MotoMod, $699 including Projector and E Ink MotoMod, $349 or $399 for the Moto Z by itself (instead of the current $699). $699 should also be a bundle to include an ultra-thin and ultra-light small bezel 13.3" Laptop Dock and Desktop Dock MotoMod and with the appropriate Remix OS like Android implementation through Android Nougat to support full Android Powered Productivity on the external display.
