Toyota and teamLab partnered to create an app in which children are able to experience infinite joy from engaging in the following three key elements: “Move” (moving things), “Build” (freely creating things), and “More” (making more friends). These key elements are the basis for the name “Mobilmo”.
This new app will allow children from all over the world to connect with their dreams and help them find joy in the craft of future manufacturing.
Mobilmo is available for download on smartphones and tablets that allows children around the world to create their own Mobilmo (3D contraptions) to explore the virtual planet of Cosmobi.
They can choose from a variety of 3D parts to create their very own Mobilmo, program their Mobilmo to remember unique movements that they create, and exchange parts with other Mobilmo that they may encounter while exploring the virtual planet of Cosmobi to build up their own original Mobilmo.
Mobilmo is said to provide children with an opportunity to discover new ways of making something truly unique and to connect with others. Toyota sees the app as having the potential to contribute to the advancement of “digital monozukuri (making things)”, which is expected to accelerate.
Yu Yoshida of Toyota Motor Corporation’s Marketing Division said: “We would be happy if this app gives children flashes of inspiration and boosts their creative powers.”
