Friday's blog post similarly commented on futuristic authentication methods that Motorola was working on. "Today we're launching Motorola Skip for Moto X, which is the first step on the path."
Included with the Skip device will be three Skip dots, stickers you can place around your home or office desk as "trusted zones," that will also unlock the Moto X if you tap it to the dot.
Setting a Dot Alarm
Motorola's example offers a bedtime scenario where you place your phone on the side of the bed telling the dot, "OK, Google Now, set alarm for 7 a.m."
Friday's announcement did not mention the technology underlying Skip but it is assumed that it is a near-field communication device.
Once Moto X launches, at a date believed to be coming soon, Motorola Skip with its three dots will be available for purchase on Motorola.com.
For a limited time, Motorola Skip will be free with orders of Moto X through Moto Maker, the online customize-your-phone site.
