On September 6, 2012 I was first introduced to Mo, the Modibot. He was a protoype at the time and the start of something new from my new friend Wayne Losey. Wayne had tried a Kickstarter for some really nice looking action figures. The Kickstarter did not get funded and he asked me to go have coffee with him to talk about Kickstarter campaigns and social media. We had a really nice discussion and while we were talking Wayne introduced me to Mo. This was a character that he had created using 3D printing at Shapeways. I instantly saw something great in this simple character.
Mo is so incredibly posable that he could do all sorts of things. Get a Facebook fan page for him and take photos of his adventures. Get people excited about him and as you create new accessories through Shapeways introduce them. About a year later Wayne launched a new Kickstarter and this time it was for Modibot. The campaign got funded and I made sure that I picked up a ton of the figures. Well, a few years have passed and Wayne continues to make parts for Mo and refine the figure. He asked if I had any of the new colors. I didn’t and so he sent me a mess of parts and accessories. I plan on making some stop motion animations with Mo soon. I was inspired because Wayne showed a photo of some magnetic fee that he was making for his figures. This will be perfect for keeping the character in the exact spot for making stop motion. So, today I made my own magnetic feet and show ou some of the new accessories for Mo.
