mimoco, the company responsible for fusing designer toys and technology, is pleased to announce the next series of mimobots, the goSeries. Featuring four brand new designs (plus a yet-to-be-revealed secret character) from artist Yahid ‘Serial Killer’ Rodriguez of Mazatlan, Mexico; they land on Earth in early December.
"The mimobots propagation has begun," stated Evan Blaustein, founder of mimoco and the brain trust behind mimobots. "The goSeries further expands our vision to combine functional technology with designer toy style."
goSeries characters have traveled a long way from their home planet blõôh, where their memories were erased in a ‘flash event.’ They now hunger for data to revitalize and cure their amnesiac state. The goSeries mimobots - ta2b, galaxor, jolibear, vera - each have their own backstory and personality. For instance, vera the vamp is out most nights sucking bits from wherever she can find a juicy victim, and her hobbies include flying at night through the kaleidoscopic canyons of the planet blõôh. Along with cosmos Series mimobots, you can find out more about all their stories and adopt your own at www.mimoco.com.
Within the digital minds of all mimobots resides special bonus content. UK-based design studio, Peskimo, lends their talents to goSeries mimobots and provides character specific mini-animations, games, and other amusements for your enjoyment.
"We’re excited to contribute to the mimobot adventure," said David Partington & Jodie Davis, partners at Peskimo. "mimoco’s efforts to bridge art and tech is inspiring to us, so creating content and personas for the goSeries mimobots is extremely rewarding and we look forward to fans discovering this world."
There will be 500 of each goSeries mimobot produced. Storage capacities range from 256MB to 2GB ($69.95 to $189.95) and they are available for pre-order now at lab.mimoco.com.
