BRAINSTREAM  - FUN & FUNCTIONAL GIFTS

A good idea is only a good idea. It takes a lot to turn a good idea into a product or even into a successful enterprise. These are the milestones of 10 years BRAINSTREAM.

In course of the European Football Championship in Austria and Switzerland, BRAINSTREAM bred its first BeepEgg® edition. Playing three tunes for three levels of hardness, it is an alternative to The Golden BeepEgg®. Due to its success, we started to develop further editions.

2007, CHANGE OF SCENE

2007, CHANGE OF SCENE

In 2007, BRAINSTREAM changed scenes. The new production site was opened and relocated to Bielefeld. The old breeding place was too small and so we came back to our roots in Bielefeld. This was the chance to put production and sales under one roof.

2005, THE GOLDEN BEEPEGG®

2005, THE GOLDEN BEEPEGG®

For our 5-year anniversary, we wanted to breed the first 3-tune BeepEgg®. The Golden BeepEgg® was born, playing “Killing Me Softly” for soft-boiled eggs, “Triumphal March” for medium-boiled eggs and “A Little Night Music” for hard boiled eggs.

2004, THE FIRST AWARD

In 2004, the “Egg of Columbus”, a price donated from an association of the University of Bochum, the “Stiftung Innovation” was given to BRAINSTREAM. Surveyed consumers, as well as a team of experts recognized BeepEgg®’s value in terms of “level of progress”, “gain of benefit”, “fascination towards potential everyday users”.
