MovieMask receives international design award
How could you get a movie theatre experience when you watch a film or series on your smartphone?
Two Norwegian students got a brilliant idea from a cinema visit in San Francisco a year ago. They went back home, and in record time developed a new product – the MovieMask goggles.
Now, just few months after the launch, the MovieMask has received international recognition – winning a Red Dot Award for outstanding design among thousands of products from all over the world.
In nine months, we went from an idea to a product which is available in stores all over Norway. This has been such an exciting journey. To receive such a sought-after seal of quality is fantastic, especially as we now are taking MovieMask internationally!
– Eirik Wahlstrøm, CEO MovieMask
The MovieMask is intended to be super easy to use. It is 100% analog, and with its unique lenses the user can watch the entire mobile screen, no special apps are needed. You can watch movies and TV series with any app. That means that when picking your favorite movie or TV show, you can use Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Youtube, etc.
Together with Inventas, a leading design and development consultancy in Norway, MovieMask went swiftly from a novel idea to a market ready product.
To get from idea to market in 11 months have been an incredibly fun journey. When Eivind and Inventas came onboard in May, we started immediately the work of modify our design in dialog with our partners in Norway, China and India. Already in September we had had two trips to China, locked the final design and was ready for production
