The Mimo Monitors Process Delivers the Industry’s Leading Small Touch Screen Solutions

We are a company that consistently strives for innovation in the small touchscreen space. With a proactive approach to solving customer needs and producing results, we have a hard-earned reputation of excellence and have developed collaborative relationships with companies such as Logitech and Google. We take a lot of pride in our development process and believe our team is our greatest asset to providing groundbreaking small touch screen solutions.


We see the key to our growth and success is a keen focus on the marketplace, drawing our inspiration from customers to determine new and exciting new products to introduce. Our customers have exceptional expertise in their fields and we work together to understand how touch screen monitor technology can improve their business success. We place a high value on our customer’s feedback and use their product comments to improve our small touch monitor products.


Our product creation process kicks off with a client collaboration session to fully understand what needs are not currently being achieved. We also use this as an opportunity to discuss detailed expectations and product requirements to develop a specification list our engineering team can utilize for product design. 


The design phase is conducted while eliciting client feedback to ensure the external aesthetics and functionality meet specification. The internal electronics are then designed and prototyping begins. Successful prototypes are created for user and life cycle testing to ensure the design is fully functioning and reliable.


At the end of this detailed and collaborative process, a new product is ready to bring to the marketplace.


Our newest product, the Mimo Vue HDMI Capture, most recently completed this process. The client’s pain-point was the struggle with sharing local content to remote conference room meetings. In today’s digital environment, remote meetings are becoming commonplace, and an inability to conduct these interactions in a streamlined fashion is detrimental to business success. By getting a detailed understanding of their issues we were able to deliver a seamless solution.


Our dedicated team of technology and design experts has the experience and customer focus required to deliver innovative and custom small touch screen solutions. With offices in Libertyville, IL and Princeton, NJ, along with our factory partner in Korea, Mimo Monitors produces this industry’s most advanced small touch monitor products in the world.

Mimo in Use: Hershey Chocolate Taste Room

Mimo in Use: Hershey Chocolate Taste Room

The Hershey’s Chocolate World located in Hershey, Pennsylvania has an exciting new attraction that is a must-visit for chocolate lovers around the world: the Hershey Chocolate Tasting Experience. Filled with the smells, sights and sounds of chocolate, Hershey’s tasting experts will teach you how to engage your senses when tasting chocolate of all varieties. Mimo Monitors are a key part of the experience. Our Magic Touch 10-inch monitors are stationed at every table, providing a crisp visual interactive experience for each taster. Visitors use this small monitor with capacitive and responsive sense technology to vote on the taste of each piece of chocolate and identify different undertones.


The Room


The Hershey’s Chocolate Tasting Experience takes place in a small, intimate multimedia room within Hershey’s Chocolate World. There are a number of tasting stations situated in this room. On each tasting station you will find a bag with four types of chocolate, a small container of raw cacao nibs, and a Hershey’s Kiss to start you off. You are provided with water to cleanse your pallet between tastings. And of course there is a state-of-the-art Mimo Magic Touch touchscreen at every station that each visitor can use to vote for the chocolate flavour they just experienced.


The Process


An area coordinator will lead you through the experience. There are well over 600 different flavours associated with chocolate, and the guide will show you how to experience them. The tasters are given a flavour wheel that indicate specific notes of chocolate, like cherry, jasmine, vanilla and brown sugar. You are asked to look at the chocolate, listen as you break it, smell it and then finally taste it. While tasting it, you are asked not to chew the chocolate, but to let it melt on your tongue. While it is melting, you are asked to concentrate on the flavours. Using the bright and beautiful small screen, you are then asked to vote on the dominant flavour you experienced and to compare it with the experts.


The Results


It’s important to understand that there really are no wrong answers. What you taste is what you taste. From the earthy, floral tastes of a strong dark chocolate, to the milky, nutty taste of a milk chocolate bar. What you are experiencing in the Hershey Chocolate Tasting Room is the process that actual taste testers go through when Hershey is developing new types of chocolate. It is an interesting “behind the scenes” experience, and if you’re ever in Hershey, PA you should absolutely stop by and embrace the opportunity.
