Mimoco is expanding their flash drive selection once again! This time around they’re adding to their Legends of Mimobot series with US Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Why those two presidents in particular? Well, it’s only logical…George Washington has just made his video game debut in Assassin’s Creed, and Abraham Lincoln is taking movie theatres by storm lately.

Of course, there’s also the thing where Washington was the first US president and Lincoln was the president who took the first huge step toward racial equality (as well as being the first sitting president to be assassinated). That could have had some influence on their choice as well.

Here’s something you should know: the George Washington flash drive is a very limited edition. They are making only 1,000 pieces, each one hand-numbered, so if you want one you’d best move quickly. Abraham Lincoln will be in production for a good long time, so if you have to choose between the two, I’d go with Washington first.

As always with MIMOBOT flash drives, these aren’t just for storing your data. They come with the full selection of icons, wallpapers and avatars you’ve come to know and love. To access the USB portion of Washington, simply remove his tricorne hat. To access Lincoln’s USB plug, you have to remove the top of his head (which I have to admit I find a little disconcerting especially considering he was shot in the head, but so be it). Each drive features a replica of its respective President’s signature across its back. Pricing ranges from $19.99 US for an 8GB to $129.99 US for a 128GB drive regardless of which style you choose.

You know what I love about Mimoco? I mean, other than the obvious fact that they make a bunch of different flash drives I can’t help but need? Even though the Washington drive is a limited edition, it’s still the same price as any of the rest of them. You know they could easily jack the price up and no one would even bat an eye, but they choose against it. I think that’s neat.

George Washington, America’s first president, is an icon for the birth and establishment of the United States, the “Father of His Country”. George Washington MIMOBOT features a Mona Lisa-esque smile hiding wooden teeth. He proudly wears his Colonial-era Tricorn hat on top of his stoic white wig while holding on to a cherry cluster. Rather than chopping down fruit trees on a whim, George Washington MIMOBOT stores and transports your documents, music, photos, and data. “First in war—first in peace—and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none…” and now he is the first president in MIMOBOT form. George Washington MIMOBOT is a hand-numbered limited edition of just 1,000 pieces.

Abraham Lincoln, immortalized as the “Great Emancipator,” was America’s 16th president, the first to be assassinated, and famous for freeing the slaves and unifying his country. His Gettysburg Address, beginning with the iconic words “Four score and seven years ago,” is considered one of the greatest speeches in American history. Abe’s MIMOBOT form leaves the top hat to the imagination and showcases his famous Lincoln chin curtain-styled beard. He sports a bow-tie to accompany his classic mid-19th century theater-going duds. Just like the real thing, Lincoln MIMOBOT allows documents, music, photos, and data to be shared, transported and collected no matter capacity or the color of the plug.

It seems like ages since we've had a flash drive post, but I guess it really hasn't been all that...
