Since 2005, design house Mimoco has undertaken "a mission to bring style and soul to consumer electronics." And the Boston-based creatives certainly haven’t fallen down on the job. With their flagship line of Mimobot designer USB drives, they’ve fused contemporary art with functional technology in a way that’s not only lighthearted and accessible, but also wildly useful. After all, who doesn’t love the convenience of a flash drive for transporting music, documents, pictures, and assorted electronic ephemera? And when you add a playful host of <i>Star Wars</i> and DC Comics characters, plus Pop-Art special-editions, to the mix? Well, things just get that much better.
There’s no question that these playful, Pop Art-inspired MIMOBOT drives from the Boston-based design house Mimoco are a kick. But they’re not just about appearances. Because keeping a mini Batman or R2-D2 with you at all times is one thing, but entrusting your vital files to the 8GB flash drive contained within that gigantic head? That’s true fandom.
