Toyota Motor Corporation today announced the global launch of Mobilmo, a mobile app that empowers children to exercise creativity through the craft of making things. 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 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.
1. What is Mobilmo?
Mobilmo 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 Mobilmo 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.

3. How to play Mobilmo
With over 100 3D parts to choose from, Mobilmo 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.
