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.
If you’re keen to jump down the (very deep) rabbit hole, check out my faves, categorized:
Nut Nibbler (Squirrel)
The Monkey King
Stuck with you! (Owls)
See No Evil, Speak No Evil & Hear No Evil (Monkeys)
Saur on Tour
The Monster Designer
Soul-fire Robo Suit
Li’l Green Rabbits
Costumes (mostly Ursine):
Pijama de Palo
Things on Heads:
It’s alive!! (also, technically, Frankenstein’s monster)
Hungry little demon
The Temptation of Eve
Mischievous riding hood
Christopher Aurelio Jr.
If you’ve come this far, there is no cookie. Sorry.
Hope you enjoyed the artwork though. Some of those very talented folks will have their designs on mimobots in the near future.
