Who is Eimatou Viséme?


Eimatou Viséme (ai-ma-too vai-zee-mee) is a world-wide patent-pending product designed and created by Paul Siegel. It features dozens of mouth shapes and a number of magnetic facial features.

It can work as a stand-alone product or can be attached onto our 1/6 scale bipeds featured here.



HOW DOES IT WORK?

Magnets are concealed within the head with their polarities carefully arranged so that the ferromagnetic facial features can glide and slide around the skull without snapping or flying away. The mouth positions (also known as visemes) slide on and off with ease so that the posture is not interfered with. This enables you to produce almost any facial expression you want. Viséme makes a fun companion on your desk or creative tool for artist and animators. Like all our other products, your purchase grants you a commercial license to take unlimited photos and videos so you can create your own stories, comic strips and films.

And since the figure is scaled to the standard 1:6 convention, you can easily modify it by purchasing a number of doll wigs and hats online. You can even sculpt over it :)

WHAT'S IT MADE OF?

It's made with a combination of wood flour, plastic, magnets and ferromagnetic materials.

HOW IS IT MADE?

Paul Siegel makes this product by hand using a combination of injection molding, 3d printing and careful post-processing and assembly. But if this campaign soars, we (Anatom Toys) are committed to look into more conventional methods of manufacturing so please spread the word!

WHAT WILL IT COST? AND WHEN WILL EIMATOU VISÉME BECOME AVAILABLE?

We're hoping to launch a crowd-funding campaign soon where we'll be announcing the price and other details. All that information will be here on this website in time. If the campaign does really well, we're hoping to use more conventional manufacturing methods. So please spread the word and join our mailing list below. We really need your voice to help us make this a success.
