Without touching anything, control all your smart devices!
CONTROL ALL YOU SMART OBJECTS... TOUCH-FREE!
Have you ever found yourself with dirty hands dirty and the vital need to use your device? Like turning the page of a recipe, changing the music track or TV channel, for example. Guess what, the same goes for us! That's why Bixi instantly seduced us, and we think you have every reason to be too.
This little tech turtle has the power to add gesture control to all your smart objects. And it does this by connecting to them via Bluetooth Low Energy and its mobile app.
As you can well imagine, a single hand wave is enough to make the magic happen. No doubt that the possibilities are endless.
YOUR LIFE WITH BIXI
Bixi is versatile. This touch-free remote can juggle several actions on two apps or two different devices. Specifically, you will be able to:
■ Control the sound of your Bluetooth speaker and the brightness of your connected lamps at the same time
■ Scroll through the pages of a book, PDF ... on your tablet and adjust the colour of your Hue light bulb
■ Pick up a phone call or switch to the next song in the car: while keeping both eyes on the road!
■ Receive GPS directions in turn-by-turn mode on the Bixi screen while controlling your GoPro camera. Ideal when on a bike!
Because yes! You can fix the device anywhere by attaching a magnet on its metal base.
THE APPLICATIONS COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR REMOTE CONTROL
You'll be able to assign the actions up to 7 intuitive gestures, knowing that Bixi works with a lot of applications and on any operating system. Spotify, Kindle, messages, LiFx, HUDWay ... the choice is wide ... and not exhaustive since you'll be able to integrate your own apps as Bixi is IFTTT compatible. (See Compatibility section)
COMPACT, BUT NOT BRITTLE
Don't judge it by its size, just like its animal model, Bixi is very robust: it is equipped with Gorilla® Glass 4, a scratch-resistant and very tough material. In addition, a single charge offers it 2 weeks of continuous use. Meaning: take it out!

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.
