Toyota Motor Corporation has launched MobilmoTM which is a mobile app that empowers children to exercise creativity through the craft of making things world-wide.
This mobile app is in partnerships with Toyota and teamLab to enable children to experience infinite joy from engaging in the following three key elements:
i) “Move” (moving things),
ii) “Build” (freely creating things), and
iii) “More” (making more friends).
These key elements are the basis for the name “Mobilmo”. This 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.
Our Parenting World, junior team member, KW at 6 years old was invited up to do a demonstration for the media and invited guests during the media briefing at the “Mobilmo” launch by Toyota Motor Corporation.
KW and representatives from “Mobilmo” had an interesting interactive session with the audience on his opinion on the game and KW had also demonstrated to the audience how he played the game.
When asked how did he find the game?
KW found the game very easy to pick up and he enjoyed playing with it!
1. What is MobilmoTM?
MobilmoTM is an app 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.
2. What makes MobilmoTM fun?
● Create Mobilmo of various shapes however you like.
Choose from a variety of 3D parts to create your very own Mobilmo.
● Add your favorite movements to your Mobilmo.
You can program your Mobilmo to remember unique movements that you create.
● Team up with others to co-create Mobilmo.
Exchange parts with other Mobilmo that you may encounter while exploring the virtual planet of Cosmobi to build up your own original Mobilmo.
3. How to play MobilmoTM
With over 100 3D parts to choose from, MobilmoTM is a new foray into the craft of the future of manufacturing. You can make your Mobilmo cool, cute, and even strange looking―your own original creation.
Add your favorite movement to your Mobilmo, and your Mobilmo will remember it. Do you want your Mobilmo to run? To fly? To dance? It is easy to add any kind of movement with the touch of your finger to your Mobilmo.
After you create and add movement to your Mobilmo, you are free to explore the vast expanses of the giant planet of Cosmobi. Once your Mobilmo leaves a footprint (footprint = uploading your original Mobilmo) on Cosmobi, your Mobilmo becomes visible to other players on Cosmobi.
● Meet and Clone Parts
Once you meet other Mobilmo created by other players on Cosmobi, you can exchange parts with other Mobilmo friends. Explore various places with your Mobilmo, and connect with other Mobilmo players from around the world.
