It was announced at CES today that Mimobot is launching a new USB drive line based on DC characters.

The collaboration will introduce an inspired collection of iconic DC Comics’ super heroes and villains that will be translated into the unique MIMOBOT form with USB flash drive function. The designer character-based flash drive collection leads off with a vintage 1939-era Batman now available in a limited edition run of 5,000 units, and later joined by a full Batman wave of flash drive designs in February including Robin, Catwoman and The Joker. More MIMOBOT series based on additional DC Comics’ characters, including Green Lantern, Superman and The Flash, will follow in the near future.

Mimoco Releases Fresh MIMOBOT® USB Flash Drive Designs by Pervasive Artist Gary Baseman

Official Press Release

Mimoco welcomes Baseman’s popular characters HotChaChaCha and Toby to the MIMOBOT Artist Series Collection

BOSTON, MA, November 23, 2010 – Mimoco, renowned maker of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives, and contemporary artist, Gary Baseman, announce their newest MIMOBOT collaboration — HotChaChaCha and Toby MIMOBOT drives available in 2GB to 16GB memory capacities. Both are popular characters featured in Baseman’s exhibits as painted works and vinyl toy pieces. The newly minted and limited edition MIMOBOT drives are Baseman’s second set to join the MIMOBOT collection.

Mimoco’s version of Toby and HotChaChaCha deliver all the cuddly, curious and “quirky-naughty” noted aspects of a Gary Baseman piece. FromToby’s loveable outstretched arms and all-knowing eye to HotChaChaCha’s devil fangs, horns, and angelic halos, the MIMOBOT creations are uncanny impressions of their original forms. HotChaChaCha MIMOBOT comes in a glow-in-the-dark colorway, making it one of the few glowing characters in Mimoco’s lineup.

“Baseman is the crown prince of pervasive art and we’re thrilled to be releasing two more of his beloved characters as MIMOBOTs,” says Evan Blaustein CEO and Founder of Mimoco. “Toby and HotChaChaCha are perfect in MIMOBOT form and totally encapsulate our mission to infuse everyday technology with pop art.”

Both Toby and HotChaChaCha MIMOBOT are available for purchase today at http://www.mimoco.com. Each drive also comes pre-loaded with character-specific bonus content like images, wallpapers, avatars, and more.

Gary Baseman is a contributor to Mimoco’s ongoing Artist Series, along with contemporary artists and designers such as Friendswithyou, David Horvath and Undoboy.

About Gary Baseman:
Pervasive Artist. Painter. TV/Movie Producer. Toy Designer. Curator. The LA Times describes his art “adorably perverse.” One of the leaders of the Los Angeles underground art movement, who coined the term “pervasive art,” Mr. Baseman blurs the line between toy culture and fine art with his strong iconic images, both playful and dark, childlike and adult, id driven and thought-provoking. Mr. Baseman’s work is surreal. Innocent. Lustful. Honest. Dripping with Desire. Creamy. Gooey. Everywhere. Mr. Baseman has exhibited around the world in Rome, Los Angeles, NYC, Taipei, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, Berlin, including an installation at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, paintings and sculptures in MOCA Shanghai, and a two-man show at the Laguna Art Museum titled Pervasion.
