Thanks to all 550+ of You, BatteryBot has just crossed the halfway point! 

A huge heartfelt THANKS goes out to you for being the first backers to share our vision to make portable power fun through character! We couldn't have achieved this milestone without the support of each and every one of You.

One of the biggest challenges (and pleasures!) of making character-based electronics is determining which characters to license and produce. The possibilities are limitless and that is why we believe so strongly in our business model. But the sheer number of choices is overwhelming which complicates things and is often the cause of many heated discussions in the office!

Fortunately, one of the primary benefits of running a Kickstarter campaign is the ability to tap into the wisdom of the crowd to help us make the hard decisions. We’re here on KS not only to raise the funds necessary to produce BatteryBot, but to invite you into the decision making process of selecting which characters to license and bring to market.

That said we are happy to share with you some of the concept art we’ve worked up and are reviewing internally as potential candidates to be officially licensed and manufactured in BatteryBot form. I cannot stress enough that the concept art below is not yet licensed, may never be licensed, nor produced. These are just some of the characters we are experimenting with on the BatteryBot platform to evaluate their potential before any commitments are made.

Some of these characters have been designed based on the feedback we’ve received from You in the comments section of the campaign. Others are characters we just thought would be a great addition to the line.

And, it’s important to also note that absent from this update are characters that we have already worked with in MIMOBOT form, such as Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Adventure Time, etc. Once again, we may or may not produce styles from these properties, and as soon as we can share more about any of them in BatteryBot form, we will post a new update!

For now, for your viewing pleasure, enjoy the visual eye-candy of these mock-ups and let us know in the comments which you like (and would support if produced), which you don’t like, and of course suggest more for us to review and hopefully mock up!

Thank you and enjoy!

      Creator Adrian G Tuazon on November 10

      I'd probably go for the Pikachu or Bender one. However, might I suggest something from My Little Pony? Any pony will do, but an electric shocked Derpy (known as "Fan Favorite" pony) or a Princess Celestia (power from the sun theme). I'm fairly certain if you throw on a mock-up of a pony BatteryBoy it'll get plenty of attention from the fans!

      Definitely the Tardis! And I'll add another Firefly request... As for other Doctor Who ideas, how about an Adipose? They'd definitely fit in with the 'cute, but creepy' attitude of a lot of the Mimoco standards....

      Hi guys,
      Just looking at your kickstarter I notice that the donations have slowed down a bit. I really want to see this project become a reality so maybe you should increase the number of the 40$ backers allowed. I dont know if you can even do this but I just thought I would say something! Also Pikachu is amazing and I would love one!

      I would be uber excited for a Minion and/or Tardis bot :)

      I'm in full support of Leonardo as well.

      Thanks for sharing the process with us, it's really fun to be apart of.

      I'd have to go with the minion and TARDIS, although I'd like those as flash drives as well. I second the vote for Firefly, but would love a Weeping Angel too.

      Creator Thomas Boutilier on November 5

      Would love to see a licensed TARDIS batterybot but I would think that for generic characters there would be a plethora of choices such as Frankenstein's monster or Zeus would be obvious choices. How about Nikola Tesla for a licensed character?

      Creator Sabrina Alexandra on November 5

      If these licenses work out, I'm contemplating leaving a second pledge... I mean, two batterybots are better than one, right?
