FIRST IDEA ABOUT BUWIZZ
2013

BUWIZZ IS BORN
2016

Playing with the 9398 4×4 Crawler with a couple of friends, we got the idea about controlling the Lego models with a smartphone. We had first working prototypes in 2013. After quite a few generations of prototypes, we decided to run a Kickstarter campaign to see if other people would be interested in BuWizz too and whether we should make a product based on our prototypes. And now we have a answer. ????

START TO SHOWING WORLD THAT BUWIZZ EXISTS (AND HOW GREAT IT IS)
2017

We have grown since I started working with BuWizz. It was great to watch how one project grows from seed to a strong young plant that can withstand almost everything. Now it is time to watch it grow and grow. I have a dream job and I love it. The best part is working with great, smart and enthusiastic people, that I now call friends.

My role with BuWizz started after seeing a post about this product on Eurobricks back in 2016. Since the product seemed interesting and Roni was from the same country as myself, I decided to contact him. We agreed on meeting up in order to record a few videos for the kickstarter campain. In the following years I helped created videos with various BuWizz models until I got an official job offer from him in August of 2018
