Catchbox The World's First Throwable Microphone

Posted on by Brandon Klein

The Catchbox got started more than one year ago at Aalto University, Finland. After seeing countless lectures and conferences where it was difficult to ask audience members questions, the founders decided something had to be done.  Product developers at heart, the team set about to create the world’s first throwable microphone that could be easily passed from one audience member to the next, making events more engaging and fun !

To develop the product, the company went through countless iterations, testing early prototypes at over 100 events, including large conferences and lectures.  After seeing which features, technologies, and form factors worked the best, the final design has finally been chosen and Catchbox is now ready for Pre-Orders!

Needless to say, the process was in no ways easy and special credit is due to all of the early customers like Evernote, Ohjelmisto Yrittäjät, SEFE, Nordic Business Forum, and countless others, who helped shape the product to what it is today.

Furthermore, the company wouldn't exist without Keksintösäätiö, Aalto Design Factory, Startup Sauna, and Aalto University, who have all played an instrumental role in the creation of the product, providing support and a workplace for student-driven innovations.
