While cruising around the trade show floor at SXSW last week, we came upon one of the coolest tools we’ve seen in awhile.
We all have to carry around a flash drive, whether we need to transfer files from one computer to another, or perhaps carry around a presentation in your pocket. (Don’t go there, please.)
There are times we have even put a full company presentation on a flash drive as a giveaway to perspective partners.
Well, what ever you need to use one for, they are pretty utilitarian in form and function.
But what if they could be made cooler?
Designed by the hottest new artists of today? AND have exclusive content included like wallpaper, avatars, videos, music, and more?
Like the mimoZine â„¢ digital magazine a video-based look into the world where tech, culture, and fashion converge, featuring pieces by and interviews with musicians, artists,comedians, and super-villains.
Then you have Mimobots.
These flash drives come in a variety of capacities, and a freaking crazy range of styles. We dug the one featured on the back of the MOMA catalog, by artists Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, called FriendsWithYou. All of the content on these drives follow the same vision as the artistic exterior of the drive.
But you don’t have to stop there. Are you a Star Wars fan? They have drives for you. Imagine plugging Princess Leia into your laptop.
What we also like about this company is the “green factor”. When we were at their booth, they were offering bucks off the cost, if you purchased a new drive and transferred the contents from your old one. They will recycle that old drive.
Look, we all use these, so why not do a little form with your function?
We are here to help:
This week we have a smiling Super Malfi, 8gb, numbered flash drive for one of you.
Details will be in the NEWSLETTER this week, so sign on up.
That’s right; it’s time to lighten up.
