Hi, my name is Sebastian and I am one of the founders of Locky. Do you want to hear my story?
The idea for Locky came out of insecurity, impatience, and despair. Some would say you shouldn’t build anything on negative emotions… Oh, to be so carefree! Because for me it’s like this: I wake up earlier than I wanted to, I rush the coffee down my throat, run out of the house, get in my car, and BOOM! A thought hits me like a wrecking ball (but without a Miley Cyrus sitting on top of it) – did I definitely lock the door? That’s insecurity.
Another day, I’m already at work, preparing for an important meeting, trying to gather all the key points in my head: affiliation, big data, conversion, wrecking ball… Wait, what!? Again – did I definitely lock the door? Now, that’s impatience.
Or at night, in my home, I go to bed, completely worn-out, I close my eyes, finally, finally… Wreeecking ball!!! Yeah, there we have despair. So that’s how the idea for Locky was born.
Born this way
Then I found my amazing associates and we began working on a small electronic device with a dedicated mobile app that will fit almost every key and can work even offline. Our aim was to make something that would not only remember if you closed the door, but also help you find your keys when you lose them. And we got Locky! With time, we developed more and more features, and now we can proudly present this big little device. HERE you can read more.
Work work work
But our job here isn’t done. We’re still bettering Locky, developing our flawlessly functioning app, and working on a video which will be worth a thousand words. We’re also trying to raise funds for the next production batch. For this reason, we will soon launch a campaign on Kickstarter. A lot is happening, and here is where I will keep you posted. Or do you want to be even more up to date?

Well, this is it for today. Till next time!
PS. Am I the only one who can’t stop singing „I came in like a wreeeecking baaall…” right now? I’m so sorry guys.
