Vinyl toys and smartphones come together to create an interactive, “personality-driven” gadget: MOBOTO. He’s an iPhone/iPod/iPad dock that uses a super deformed shape similar to many Kidrobot’s vinyl toys. Load your tech onto him, and MOBOTO turns it into a friend whose personality is customizable with an app! The body allows for the same creative modifications as Munnyworld vinyl figures, so fans of DIY toys will definitely want to get one.
MOBOTO is still at the Kickstarter phase, with a deadline of July 17th fast approaching. They haven’t reached the goal of $400,000 yet, but with some extra help we can hopefully see MOBOTO on store shelves. For just $50, you get one of the first figures and some extra goodies.
