Forget colourful cases for your iPads and iPhones, Mark Solomon’s Moboto project wants to bring your iOS devices to life with “real” personalities and a designer toy body that doubles as a dock, to boot!
Check out this introductory video for Moboto first:
Cool factor aside, what makes this Kickstarter project worth mentioning at Scaleogy is its ambitious goals. Interestingly, the Moboto ‘appcessory’ being pitched in their campaign is just Phase I of their business plan.
According to Solomon, although they are focusing on iOS at the moment, their long-term goal is to rollout Moboto to “new platforms like HTML5, web services, and other tech devices and robots where their personas could be applied”. Imagine microwave ovens with a personality. Cool, right?
Given their $400,000 funding goal, they definitely have a grand vision for Moboto – something that startups and entrepreneurs should ALWAYS aspire to. Like they always say, “Think big, or go home!” And there’s no truer statement for startups.
