Ever since I first saw these Mimobot USB flash drives by Mimoco, I've been trying to think of loads of reasons why I need one. I've decided that perhaps I should buy a whole bunch of them and store all my documents on them. Then when I travel, I could just have a little pouch full of cute little vampires, one-eyed ghouls and R2D2s to pull out and stick into other people's computers.
Except that R2D2 is out of stock, as is Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper. They're all limited editions, which is adding to my sense of nervous anxiety. If R2D2 is already out of circulation, will Boba Fett and Princess Leia be next?
Designed by artists like Simone Legno and Dino Alberto, Mimobots come loaded up with games, desktop icons, wallpaper downloads and avatars, so you not only get the cute gizmo but you also get loads of Giant Robot-style street cred. (Oh, and did I tell you, you can also buy them hoodies?) That's got to be worth the $39.95-plus price tag, right? RM
