Since 2005, Boston-based design house Mimoco has fused the
art of contemporary characters with the functionality of personal data storage
devices making its name known in both the pop-culture driven Art Toy underground
and the high-tech gadget world. With a mission to bring style and soul to
consumer electronics, Mimoco is renowned for their flagship collection of
MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives.
The distinctive character-based MIMOBOT line offers from 1GB to 8GB of flash
memory storage and transport for all your precious data. The MIMOBOT range is
available in several crossover flavors, such as Star Wars, Halo, Happy Tree
Friends, and Japan's Domo. Moreover, the MIMOBOT Artist Series has functioned as
a canvas for pop-artists like Gary Baseman, Jon Burgerman, and Simone Legno
amongst other fresh designer toy, street art, and urban cultured talent. MIMOBOT
flash drive creations also originate from the minds of fans through design
challenges and the original MIMOBOT Core Series of data deprived denizens
hailing from far out Planet blõôh kicked off Mimoco's creative revolution in
portable personal data storage.
