A Night Under the Stars with Verizon & the New Moto Z Droid

Shares

Thank you to Verizon for sponsoring our visit to the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium! As always, all thoughts are my own.

Last week, my family and I were invited by Verizon to the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium here in Kansas City. It was a night under the stars, a guided tour of our constellations along a 60 foot dome. I’m 36 and have never been to a planetarium before, my kids were excited and I was excited to experience this with them for the first time together.

Before the live sky tour of Kansas City, Verizon had catered in some of the best BBQ in town, Jack Stack BBQ! We also had a chance to check out the new Moto Z Droid phone from Verizon. 

If you thought you were up on technology, this will leave you mind blown… seriously.

Verizon introduced to us the Moto Z Droid phone, a device that is not only impressive by itself, it is also compatible with Moto Mods to turn this high-end phone into a solution for all of our busy lives.

If you aren’t familiar with Moto Mods, they are a line of modules that you can purchase separately and they attach to the back of your phone via a magnet system.

Intrigued? I was! When my son picked it up, my heart just kind of panicked. Don’t drop it!! Until we learned that the Moto Z Droid phone is shatter resistant. *Phew*

We were first introduced to the Moto Insta-Share Projector mod. Upon walking in, this device was projecting a movie on the wall for us to enjoy! I could imagine so many uses for the Insta-Share projector, from a movie night in the backyard to being able to share photos on your phone with a group of people or even presentations at your work. 

The projector includes an integrated kickstand, up to 70” projection and a built-in battery for up to an extra hour of projection time. Retail is $299.99.

My 8 year old snuck away and I caught him falling in love with the JBL SoundBoost Speaker mod. With a simple snap onto the back of your phone, the speaker instantly gives you a powerful stereo sound that is perfect for the backyard, a dance party with your kids, at the beach or anywhere really! The speaker features a kickstand, built-in battery for 10 hours of playtime and speakerphone capabilities. Retail is $79.99

Some of the other mods that we had a chance to see:

• TUMI Power Packs — Add up to 22 hours of battery life to your phone without adding bulk. The Power Pack snaps on so you can recharge on the run. Forget about fumbling with batteries or searching for open wall outlets…and get it done in style. Prices range from $59.99 to $89.99.

• Hasselblad True Zoom CameraAdd an advanced imaging experience to your Moto Z Droid, Moto Z Force Droid or Moto Z Play Droid in a snap. The Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod™ enables you to capture shots normally impossible with a standard smartphone camera. And because the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod becomes one with your phone, sharing results in the moment is virtually a click away. Hasselblad is known worldwide for the finest camera equipment. $199.99

As a Samsung user, I had no idea that Moto has been innovating this kind of technology and it was really cool to see up close.
