Bigger displays are something that smartphone users these days seem to be asking for which makes it ideal to watch videos, surf the web, and play games on. It also makes it easier to type on. However there are some who might prefer physical input such as QWERTY keyboards, although such devices aren’t that common these days.

Now if you love physical input devices but want a modern smartphone, then you might be interested in the Keyboard Mod that has launched on Indiegogo. This is a Moto Mod designed for Motorola’s Moto Z lineup that basically adds a keyboard attachment to the handset that can be slid in or out depending on your needs.

Its creators are hoping to raise $100,000 and at this time of writing, they have about 13 days left and are almost at the 50% mark. The Moto Mod is currently in the prototype phase and its creators are getting ready to pitch the idea to both Motorola and Verizon, so hopefully the idea is well-received and that maybe they could get some financial backing to make it a reality.

The device itself appears to be pretty straightforward where all it does is offer users a physical way to type on their phones, although given its design users will have to type it in landscape mode pretty much all the time. It’s a cool idea and if you think that it’s worth supporting, then hit up its Indiegogo page where a pledge of $60 will nab you the Keyboard Mod upon successful funding and production.
