About Us

Astrohaus is a New York City based connected hardware company focused on creating products people love. It was founded in 2014 with the launch of the Freewrite distraction-free writing tool after successfully raising ~$350k on Kickstarter (Campaign). All units were shipped out to Kickstarter backers in April 2016.

We don't take the middle road and aren't afraid of stirring controversy with our products. Our mission is to create unique, well-designed consumer products that make people's lives more productive and fulfilling. We are building Astrohaus as a product development company that will continuously launch new, exciting products and market them until they can be spun out or sold. With the success of the Freewrite, we are now thinking bigger to larger markets with an aggressive launch schedule of new hardware and software products.
