Mimobots!

I had my first run-in with a Mimobot and the fine folks at Mimoco during SXSW back in March. I loved the concept and the execution so much I got one for myself and one for Jenn and even contemplated them as “toys” for Rae & Owen.

Hey, Rae needed a flash drive for school. It might’ve worked.

I love mine current Mimobot – Zombie Tiki God – enough so that I’ve taken several pictures of her him it.

The company is active on Flickr & Twitter, so if you’re inclined towards vinyl toys and stuff of that sort, check them out.

I’m so enamored recently, that I’ve bought another and wasted endless night-time hours surfing through their design competition entries.

One thought on “Mimobots!

  1. My little piece of the Fiesta Movement…

    As an initial caveat, I’d like to start off by saying that I am not an “Agent” of Ford’s Fiesta Movement, I’m just someone who has seen the promotion/activation/campaign and been pretty impressed by the use of social media…
