Bluemint Labs was present at the 2016 Las Vegas CES and got the attention of many by presenting Bixi. This compact device makes it possible to control smart devices without one tactile contact. One year later, the gesture remote control received the prestigious 2017 CES Innovation Award.
The Grenoble startup was co-founded by the STMicroelectronics multinational company's former engineer and vice-president : Vijayaraghavan Narayanan and Loïc Lietar. It was only in 2015 and yet, they ended up in the top 28 French Tech the same year, then the next (2016).
To top it off, Bixi was funded in less than 5 hours on Kickstarter in the fall of 2016. They owe it to great partners but also to their wide experience in the innovation and electronics field. If someone were to simplify the use of smart objects for all, Bluemint Labs seems the closest to the goal.
