I talked to Alec from Mimoco about the Mimobots. These are some cool designer USB hard drives with different custom designes on them. The even have a line of Star Wars and Halo Mimobots
Here’s a little bit more background about Mimoco taken from their site
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 savvy high-tech ‘tronic world. With a mission to bring style and soul to consumer electronics, Mimoco is renowned for our 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 finest and most precious music, docs, pics and other personal data bits and bytes. The MIMOBOT range is available in several crossover flavors, such as Star Wars, Halo, and Japan’s Domo and our 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.
