Poor Boy, surrounded by Suspicious Minds, unable to attend CES yourself. It Hurts Me, and I wonder Are You Lonesome Tonight? Because if you are, Dont’cha Think It’s Time for you to Follow That Dream for just One Night, and head to a Viva Las Vegas of the mind? I Gotta Know if you really are A Mess of Blues, because It’s Now Or Never and this Hard Headed Woman is going to take you to the Promised Land to listen to the Guitar Man and dance the night away in your Blue Suede Shoes. Because I have to admit, I could use a Good Luck Charm, and while I think it might be Witchcraft or that (You’re the) Devil in Disguise, My Wish Came True and I’m Stuck On You.

In other words…Mimoco has given me an opportunity to string together the titles of a bunch of Elvis’ greatest hits, which was probably way more fun for me than it was for you, and they’ve launched a new series of MIMOBOT flash drives that features Elvis in all his glory. From G.I. Blues fatigues to Blue Hawaii shirt, there’s an Elvis for pretty much everyone. And I want them all. Right now. And not just because I have this obsession with flash drives, although that definitely plays a part, but because as with everything MIMOBOT, they come with exclusive Mimory™ content, including archival Elvis interviews, photographs, and more. The line also comes with the MimoDesk™ personalization suite, which includes ELVIS X MIMOBOT-themed wallpapers, icons, and avatars. Finally, ELVIS X MIMOBOT is equipped with MimoByte™ sound software powered with an offering of iconic sounds and character dialogue that play each time ELVIS X MIMOBOT is inserted in or ejected from one’s computer. Do I really need to explain why I need these?

MIMOCO has partnered with Elvis Presley Enterprises to produce these flash drives, which are available with up to 128GB of storage, and with USB 3.0 speed. The timing, of course, is impeccable, as is the location they chose for the unveiling. This is the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ Aloha from Hawaii concert, and as we all know he spent a great deal of time performing in Las Vegas. It’s always been a dream of mine to someday be married in Vegas by an Elvis impersonator (yeah, I know…whatever). Anyway, you choose between Sergeant Elvis, which is a limited edition run of 1,000 pieces, or his Aloha From Hawaii outfit.

(Las Vegas, Nevada – January 8, 2013) – At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Mimoco, creator of the MIMOBOT® brand of designer USB flash drives, is proud to announce their first music-inspired collaboration with none other than the “King of Rock and Roll,” Elvis Presley. On what would have been his 78th birthday, and in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Mimoco is honored to add this preeminent American idol to its Legends of MIMOBOT collection. Featuring people that have influenced the modern cultural landscape, the Legends of MIMOBOT series debuted with Nobel Prize-recipient, Albert Einstein, and continued with the most influential martial artist of all time, Bruce Lee.

With ELVIS X MIMOBOT, Mimoco commemorates several milestones in the everlasting legacy of “The King”: the 78th anniversary of his birth; the newly proclaimed Elvis Presley Day in Memphis, Tennessee; and the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ 1973 Aloha from Hawaii concert, the first live concert ever broadcast. The ELVIS X MIMOBOT release features two design variants, both available with up to 128GB of data storage and in blazing-fast USB3.0 speeds. The line comes preloaded with bonus Elvis Presley Mimory™ content, including archival Elvis interviews, photographs, and more. The line also comes with the MimoDesk™ personalization suite, which includes ELVIS X MIMOBOT-themed wallpapers, icons, and avatars. Finally, ELVIS X MIMOBOT is equipped with MimoByte™ sound software powered with an offering of iconic sounds and character dialogue that play each time ELVIS X MIMOBOT is inserted in or ejected from one’s computer.
