You may have already heard about Domo, a Japanese animated character, which has recently become a viral sensation — much like Hello Kitty — in the US. Domo is a fuzzy, brown character that was created by a Japanese television station in 1998 as a mascot. He quickly became popular at novelty shops in Japan and it was recently announced that he will make his US debut on the Nicktoons Network, with a series of two-minute shorts.
How will the US celebrate our soon-to-be love and adoration for all things Domo? The USB mavens at Mimoco hope we'll be picking up Domo art/toy USB flash drives. It's hard to fall in love at first glance, but I must admit, Domo is pretty cute.
The Domo flash drives will be available in capacities from 1 to 4GB, and will be fully functional flash drives encased in cute and colorful bodies compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms. They will cost $49.95 to $109.95 for 1GB to 4 GB of space. Available at specialty retail shops and at Domonation.com and mimobot.com in early November. You can get a better feeling of the show by checking out the video below.
