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
