LUNATIK: Father of Apple Watch

Apple Watch incognito as LUNATIK

Hello everyone. Hope 2018 is going well for all of you. The year started off with another trip to the Consumer Electronics Show as usual to meet with clients and partners. One of the startups we are incubating and advising had an interesting visitor at their booth that confirmed a suspicion that many you have voiced over the years. An Apple Watch engineer stopped to marvel at the animation (see below) that MNML created for Ovie Smart Food Storage. Remarking that the animation was as good as what they do in-house he laughed while disclosing that Apple had bought LUNATIK watch kits to place early Apple Watch guts into modified Apple nanos so they could wear and test them in the wild without anyone knowing. So if you ever saw a LUNATIK out and about in SFO that looked like the image above it was likely a prototype of the eventual Apple Watch. While the nano is long gone, as is the LUNATIK watch kit, we are proud to have been at the beginning of it all and look forward to continuing to ask "what if?".

It's been a while since we sparked crowdfunding and inspired a new wave of entrepreneurs around the world (almost 8 years if you can believe it) and MINIMAL and myself continue to look at problems and opportunities to deliver inspiring products and solutions. As early adopters and influencers we value your input and support. Thank you!

Lastly, if you want to help reduce food waste, save money and are interested in the Ovie Smart Food Storage project, sign up here, and Ovie will be giving away a complete system of containers and sensors to a lucky winner that subscribes to their email list between now and their Kickstarter launch in mid-April. 

Very Best- Scott Wilson

Hey all you OG Lunatiks. Hope everyone is well. Just wanted to give you a heads up on a product that we designed for some local Chicago entrepreneurs and their startup, Deskview. It’s the world’s first window-mounted floating work surface. They came to us with an idea to create a quick to install worksurface that mounts to any smooth non-porous wall using industrial-grade architecture vacuum-suction cups. Check out the demo here on Kickstarter and take advantage of the special limited MINIMAL Design discounted pledge level of $125 through midnight tonight. Don’t wait for your boss to give you that window office, create one for yourself.

DeskView launched on Kickstarter and hit their funding goal in 24 hours. They've got a lot of great press and have been featured as a Kickstarter "Product We Love" and is the top featured Design on Kickstarter right now.

The team is going on Kickstarter live at 4:00pm CST today (Sunday) to answer any questions.

Have a great weekend!

Last Chance For the Best Nano Watch Kits. Ever.

Dear Original Backers,

We hope you've all been well and continue to enjoy your watch kits that helped kickstart LUNATIK. LUNATIK isn’t going anywhere, but as we're sure you've heard by now, our original run of TikTok+LunaTik watch kits are coming to a close. Apple is making the old new again, reverting back to the candy bar shape for their latest iPod nano.

But we refuse to mourn the loss of our nano watch bands! So head to LUNATIK.com and enter LASTCHANCE at checkout to get some special deals on our watch kits. Maybe you were holding out for our LYNK band or the latest Chicago Collection leather straps? Well, now's your chance to stock up before they're gone.

With or without a watch size nano, LUNATIK will continue to create premium designed, innovative products. Stay tuned for whats next to come from the LUNATIK Lab. We value your loyalty and support.

Best,

The Team at LUNATIK
