Mimobot: Adding Some Funk to Your Old PC

13 September 2010

USB drives are the most important gadgets for people these days. However, not everyone may appreciate a stick-like USB that is more practical than aesthetic. In fact, admit it, you’d rather choose Kingston’s mini USB drives or other coloured ones over the conventional white drives. So, if you’re looking for a USB drive that will please your eyes, befriend your pocket, and store your data, why not consider the Mimobot?

Mimobot is actually a line of USB flash drives that are shaped as the U.S and Japan’s most famous cartoon characters. If you’re a fan of Star Wars, you can buy an Obi Wan Kenobi USB or, the latest addition, a Yoda USB. On the other hand, if Hello Kitty is your all time favourite, you will have more than a handful of designs to choose from.

History of the Mimobot

Mimobots are actually aliens from a planet called Bloog, which is situated in galaxy 4210. Unlike the aliens Hollywood seems to scare us with, the Mimobots are sweet, lovable and always happy. However, they do have a certain fetish – memory. They love committing things to memory and are always trying to store more.

So, to regain their memory, they created clones and sent them to Earth through flashporting in order that people use them. Thus, whenever people use Mimobot clones, the information stored on the clones will be sent to RALF computer, which in turn will send the information to the original Mimobot.


A Mimobot USB drive will be 60 x 27 x 13mm in size, thus it is small enough to fit anywhere. You can choose to buy any of the designs offered with a 2GB, 4GB, 8GB or a 16GB storage limit. Plus, the USB drive is compatible with Windows (98 SE to Vista) and Mac (OS 9.0 or later). This means that Linux users won’t be able to enjoy the beauty of a Mimobot, yet hopefully they will soon enough.

In addition to all of this, the Mimobot offers a very attractive bundle of stuff. With each USB drive, screensavers, icons, and wallpapers are included. Plus, for fun, the Mimobot comes with a special sound clip that is played whenever you plug it into your PC or remove it. All this can be yours for £25 and with a one year warranty.

The Bottom Line

The Mimobot is definitely bound to grab people’s attention wherever you go. And the best part is that you won’t have to compromise functionality in spite of the exquisite appearance of the USB, so it really is a win-win situation for you.
