Cute alert: Mimobots turn 5

To celebrate five years of its uber-cute flash drives, Mimoco is rereleasing four limited-edition Mimobot characters from the Core series that came out way back in 2005.

Has it really been only five years since design studio Mimoco introduced its first uber-cute designer flash drives? Given the countless iterations of these things that have flashed before our eyes (see what I did there?), it seems like they've been around since the advent of the USB specification.

After all, we've seen Mimobots in virtually every theme imaginable: Star Wars Mimobots; Halo-themed Mimobots; Domo-kun Mimobots; Hello Kitty Mimobots (naturally; every peripheral MUST come in a Hello Kitty version, it's the law); and even a Hunter S. Thompson-inspired device.

Now, to celebrate five years of funky flash storage, Mimoco is rereleasing four limited-edition Mimobot characters from the Core series that came out way back in the olden days of 2005: Isadore, RayD81, Swirl, and Fairybit (names sure to mean something to true Mimobot maniacs).

All are available in 2GB to 16GB capacities, ranging in price accordingly from $24.95 to $79.95. And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming...
