We all want to make our loved ones happy, and making others happy brings us joy. Research shows that the key to successful relationships is the ratio between negative and positive interactions. There is a magic ratio of 1:5. Every negative interaction should be followed by at least 5 positive interactions. Even if we all know how important it is to nurture our relationships, we often struggle to fit it into our everyday life.
At Lovebox, we help you nurture your relationships seamlessly in everyday life, no matter how busy your life is. We started with a messaging device specifically designed to receive love notes from family and friends, providing real life emotions. The Lovebox sits in your home and is connected to the Wi-Fi. Loved ones send messages with a mobile app, from anywhere in the world. When the Lovebox receives the message, the heart on the beechwood box spins to alert the recipient, until the lid is opened to read the message that appears on a screen.
The Lovebox is the ideal gift to take care of your partner, child, parent, grandparents, family members, and your friends.
It all started back in 2015 when Jean left for MIT in Boston to research robotics while his fiancee Melodie stayed in France. He wanted to find a way to send her his love regardless of the distance, that’s why he invented the Lovebox. The first Lovebox was built in a FabLab, it’s the pretty vintage looking box on the left side of the image. When FabLab’s visitors discovered the Lovebox, they thought this invention could actually help them stay connected to family members in general. That is how this invention turned into creating a start-up with the mission to create emotional connection in families. Our first users had to apply by sending us a love letter! Based on their feedback, we redesigned our product (with our wonderful designer Xavier Houy in Paris) and we built 500 Loveboxes for Christmas 2016. Since then, we delivered more than 20,000 Loveboxes in France, Europe, and the United States. More than 100,000 love messages are being exchanged every day all over the world!
