Mimobot Designer Flash Drives 36 Percent Off Through Monday

We love pretty much everything about mimobots—designer USB flash drives that come in flavors from Star Wars sex to pirates—except their designer price. But through Monday, they've knocked 36 percent off everything they sell (because that's how much of its value the Dow has lost through year), officially bring them… » 11/29/08 6:00pm 11/29/08 6:00pm

Mimobot Designer Flash Drives Grow to 8GB

If lack of storage was the major reason you were holding off on dropping the coin for a mimobot designer flash drive (which I have a soft spot for even though the price/value ratio is slightly outside of this reality), get ready to open up your tri-fold wallet, they've just started offering 8GB drives. They're $140,… » 5/20/08 4:30pm 5/20/08 4:30pm

New mimobots Bring Some Friends of the Happy Tree Variety

While the guts haven't changed since the last update (1, 2, or 4GB sizes, for $50, $70 and $110, respectively), mimoco just dropped 15… » 8/08/07 12:17pm 8/08/07 12:17pm

Paws On the Artist Series '07 mimobots at NY Comic Con

The NY Comic Con was disappointingly less gadget-y (or worthwhile) than I had hoped, which is to say that it was gadget-less until I spotted the Mimoco banner way against the back wall. And what can I say, I'm a whore for art toys—Kid Robot has gotten far too much money from me over the last couple of years. » 2/25/07 9:25am 2/25/07 9:25am
