Mimoco has announced the winning designs from their 2010 "Unmasked" design challenge with partner Infectious, makers of electronics skins and skateboard decks. The top designs in the competition include one grand prize winner, two runners up, and three honorable mention designs. Each of the winners will have their designs produced as runs of MIMOBOT USB flash drives to join the MIMOBOT collection in early 2011.
No Face Dave MIMOBOT by David Galvin
Winning design, “No Face Dave” by American designer David Galvan, is the MIMOBOT that won’t stay dead. Beneath the cap, his skeleton face with dangling eyeball and blue tongue, or the pink-tongued alternate skinless zombie face is revealed. Once masked, Dave has a cheesy smile, eyebrow ring, tattooed arms and baggy jeans.
Mimoodoo MIMOBOT by Ivana Štrukelj
Runner up, “Mimoodoo” by Croatian designer Ivana Štrukelj is a tanned native schooled in the voodoo arts. Wearing only a skeleton mask, leaf skirt, and bones in his hair, he looks tough - but under his scary cute mask, his sweet face is puckered into a kiss.
Princess des Fruit: Wendy Baby MIMOBOT by Cerise
Second runner up, “Princesses des Fruits: Wendy Baby” by French artist Cerise, loves cherries, teddy bears, and everything pink. Unmasked, her innocent smile shows off one tooth and wide eyes. Both Ivana and Cerise’s designs are joining Mimoco’s line in 2011.
The three honorable mentions that are also being created into MIMOBOTS include “Amazing Bot” by Argentinean designer Diego Vaisberg, “” by Eduardo Flores of Austin, Texas, and “Osoneitor-bot” by Jonathan Costa of Caracas, Venezuela.
