Mimobot Flash Drive

Art meets technology in Boston-based Mimoco’s Mimobots. Adult toys and collectibles are a big trend in urban street culture, and Mimoco’s mission is to “bring style and soul to personal tech devices and to inject interactivity into the burgeoning designer toy movement”. Not just a USB drive in a plastic case, the first Mimobots were designed by Yahid ‘Serial Killer’ Rodriguez. Now there is an ongoing collaboration with the Artist Series, which are created by a selection of influential artists from different pop art genres. For those willing to wait, January 2007 will bring you the limited edition Star Wars Mimobots with Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Stormtropper R2-D2. At 2” high, these little data monsters come in sizes from 256MB to 2GB and are the perfect little stocking stuffer.
