Las Vegas, NV – January 7, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today opened key interactive Galaxy experiences at the Samsung booth, CES 2014.

Kidrobot – Technology Meets Art and Design
Samsung and Kidrobot, the world’s premier creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, signature apparel and lifestyle accessories, have collaborated to design unique, custom figurines inspired by the power of Samsung Galaxy mobile devices. An increasingly important platform for self‐expression, mobile technology connects with users through mobile accessories, creative applications, or digital design within the device itself. Capturing Kidrobot’s inspired design on both the Galaxy accessories as well as in the devices themselves, creates multiple new touch points for artistic expression.
The Kidrobot Installation at the Samsung booth will introduce the original Samsung Galaxy‐inspired figure from Kidrobot. This brand new, original new platform has been named “MiWe” which not only aligns with the Kidrobot vinyl family, but it is also the acronym for Samsung’s marketing motto, “Meaningful Innovation, Wow Experience.” The Samsung Galaxy collaboration now gives you several touch points of customization for a colorful life.
Three large imaginative Sculptures and 500 mini‐figurines will be featured alongside Samsung Galaxy devices and accessories at the Samsung booth. Users will have multiple touch‐points with which to engage with these creative designs, letting them enjoy the expressive, powerful, and fun artwork from Kidrobot’s world of popular artists in a variety of connected ways.
World‐renowned artists Scribe, Buff Monster and Woes will also be on hand at the Samsung booth and live painting the five‐foot Kidrobot X Samsung Art Giants, one for each of the first three days of CES 2014.
