Mimoco, renowned for their line of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives, is partnering with Infectious, makers of electronics skins, skateboard decks, and more, to sponsor a design contest seeking the best “Unmasked” MIMOBOT designs. The competition began today (June 10th 2010) and will be accepting submissions through July 15th 2010.
The challenge was inspired by Mimoco’s co-branded Star Wars™ MIMOBOT Series that includes such characters as Darth Vader Unmasked and Stormtrooper Unmasked that employ removable helmet caps exposing not only the USB plug beneath but one of two variant face designs. Mimoco is providing the MIMOBOT Helmet template at http://mimoco.com/infectious to use in the design process. After public voting ends on July 29th, the top twenty designs will move into the finals where select judges will choose the three winners to be produced as runs of MIMOBOT designer USB flash drives.
