Mimoco, the folks behind the awesome Mimobot flash drives we love so much, recently revealed a new line of USB flash drive card readers dubbed MimoMicro. The new miniature designer drives function the same way as a normal flash drive, but the digital storage comes from users' MicroSD cards from their smartphone, tablet or camera.
The new line kicks off in March with characters like Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3PO, and Chewbacca leading the charge. There will also be a Millennium Falcon drive and characters including Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman will launch the DC Comics line.
"As the pioneers in the licensed flash drive marketplace, Mimoco is excited to unveil our first new product line to build upon the success of our popular MIMOBOT platform. MIMOMICRO leverages compatibility with both USB and microSD enabled memory devices and taps into the growing usage of mobile memory solutions," said Evan Blaustein, CEO of Mimoco.
"We're thrilled to introduce our new co-branded product alongside licensing partners Lucas Licensing and Warner Bros. Consumer Products," Blaustein added. "MIMOMICRO gives our customers the ability to select and upgrade their favorite characters' memory capacity and an easy way to transfer data from mobile devices to computers."
We stopped by the Mimoco booth at CES 2012 to check out the new line of USB card readers and had a quick chat with Jessica Smiley who filled us in on the new product line, its inspiration and its future. You can get all the details in the video below.
