At first glance, I thought the concept of a blind box MIMOBOT was a bit strange. I mean, I love my Urban Treeson MIMOBOT because I fell in love with that particular design. Then again, you can’t go wrong with any design by Friends With You.
MIMOBOT BLOTz™ is an assortment of 15 different ‘Wish Come True’ designs from Miami-based, art duo FriendsWithYou. Each blind box Mimobot will have 2GB capacity and is preloaded with Friends With You wallpapers, icons, avatars, and screensavers. (I love the MimoDesk suite that came with Urban Treeson.)
And of course, this lovely video preview is the best ever. I want them all! Get your Wish Come True Blotz here.
Mimoco, the Boston-based maker of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives, are partnering with Munky King to create the world’s first MIMOBOT Pop-Up Shop which will run from November 1st through November 29th, 2009.
During the month-long pop-up, Mimoco and Munky King will host opening and closing parties, on November 5th and November 27th, respectively, featuring live art installations, live music, artist signings, contests, giveaways and an exclusive MIMOBOT release.
The first Hello Kitty Mimobot is here! Cute as expected…but personally I am waiting for Tuxedo Sam to appear. If you sign up for Mimobot’s newsletter, you can be the first to know when the new characters drop.
All I can say is: Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!! Tuxedo Sam, baby!!
