Next time you need to save those important class notes and term papers, try out the new mimobots. They might look like children's toys, but these cute characters are actually flash memory drives.

Mimoco's first set of the colorful disk drives is the Cosmo Series mimobots -- protobot0, protobot1, isadore and fairybit.

These USB devices, designed by urban artist Yahid "Serial Killer" Rodriguez, are produced in limited sets of 500. Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh, mimobots come in 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB and 2 GB sizes.

Each device comes with cool extras. The Cosmo Bots have an exclusive drum and bass mix by DJ DB. Mimobots can be purchased at
