Samsung Kidrobot artist team appears at MWC 2014: Tilt, The London Police

Just as it was at CES 2014, so too did Samsung team up with Kidrobot to deliver artistic expression to the masses with artists Tilt and The London Police. The collaboration between Samsung and Kidrobot includes a set of custom cases and devices - the Galaxy Note 3 continues to be a centerpiece here even as the Samsung Galaxy S5 is introduced on a global scale - while customized vinyl toys sit right alongside.

"Log your day, every day" Sony says, hoping that it's the SmartBand SWR10 you choose to do that with, not just a pen and paper.
