Bilan du CES 2015 pour @LaFrenchTech | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

Avec 160 entreprises, la France est le premier pays représenté en Europe !

Le Consumer Electronics Show de Las Vegas est un rendez-vous incontournable pour tous les acteurs de l’électronique grand public. La French Tech se devait d’affirmer sa présence sur le salon qui a vu émerger toutes les innovations de rupture du secteur depuis près de 50 ans et fixe chaque année les tendances technologiques à venir.

La French Tech se démarque par la diversité de ses entreprises.

De grands groupes tournés vers leur transformation digitale, dont certains exposent pour la première fois : La Poste, L’Oréal, Pernod Ricard, Valéo, etc.De grosses start-up déjà renommées sur le CES : Withings, Netatmo, Sen.se, Parrot…66 start-up émergentes sur l’Eureka Park, l’espace qui leur est dédié au CES : la French Tech y représente donc près d’une start-up sur 4 !

Les pouvoirs publics et les institutionnels mobilisés pour encourager et soutenir la forte présence française.

Ainsi, Emmanuel Macron, le ministre de l’Economie, de l’Industrie et du Numérique, Axelle Lemaire, la Secrétaire d’Etat au Numérique et Pierre Gattaz, le Président du MEDEF font le déplacement au CES pour faire mieux connaitre la dynamique entrepreneuriale française et soutenir la French Tech.

Un dispositif global pour coordonner et amplifier la visibilité internationale des start-up de la French Tech
Plusieurs délégations fédérées sous la bannière French Tech :

Pour la deuxième année consécutive, UBIFRANCE organise le "French Tech Pavilion", le pavillon national officiel de la French Tech sur le CES.Mon Territoire Numérique, en partenariat avec les Régions Basse-Normandie, Auvergne et Languedoc-Roussillon, ainsi que Minalogic, accompagnent également des start-up de la French Tech exposante au CES.

5 startups distinguées au CES innovation Awards

Il y a quelques semaines avaient lieu les CES Innovation Awards, une compétition organisée par le CES, qui récompense les produits les plus innovants parmi ceux qui seront exposés lors de la conférence de janvier. Les vainqueurs auront l'occasion d'être mis en avant sur l'Innovation Awards Showcase lors de l'événement. A cette occasion, 5 entreprises de la French Tech ont vu leurs produits primés !

Audi and Google Team up on Android Powered dashboards

Audi and Google Team up on Android Powered dashboards | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it
Google has just forged a partnership with German automaker Audi to bring an Android-powered entertainment and information system to Audi vehicle dashboards in the near future. It's a clear shot against Apple, which announced an 'iOS in the Car' program last year, with the collaboration of Mercedes, BMW and Honda — as well as GM in the United States. Here's the Wall Street Journal's take on the deal, which was their scoop: "With 80 million new cars and light trucks sold each year, automobiles represent a significant new opportunity for Internet-based software and services. 'The car is becoming the ultimate mobile device,' said Thilo Koslowski, an analyst at the research firm Gartner. 'Apple and Google see that and are trying to line up allies to bring their technology into the vehicle.'"
Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Time to remember that mobile started as a car phone, and that Microsoft announced 'Auto PC' a few years ago...

Il y a quelques mois, les constructeurs ne voulaient surtout pas dire si Android était embarqué. C'est le cas depuis longtemps. Une excellente chose que cela soit enfin clair...

Even @theEconomist loves @LaFrenchTech

WHILE much of the world is swathed in gloom, the 48th annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which opened to the public on January 6th, is all jollity. Demand for such gadgets adds up to more than $1 trillion a year, according to the Consumer Electronic Association (CEA), which puts on the world’s most important consumer-tech jamboree. More than 3,600 companies are exhibiting in the Nevada city and more than 20,000 new products will be launched.

Among the novelties this year is an exceptionally strong French presence. Around 120 firms from France are showing their wares there, fewer than from China, the United States, South Korea or Taiwan, but more than from other European countries such as Germany and Britain.

 

Some are big companies applying new digital technology to essentially old businesses, among them the cosmetics giant L’Oréal, drinks-maker Pernod Ricard and La Poste. A swathe of established mid-sized tech firms are there too, a number of them serial winners of awards for innovation. The new Activité Pop smartwatch by Withings is attracting attention. So are Netatmo’s bracelet measuring sun exposure and Parrot’s mini-drones and fancy headphones.

The big increase, however, is in the number of French start-ups. Up from 38 in 2014 to 66 this year, they account for almost one in four of the firms in Eureka Park, an area reserved for start-ups. Only America has fielded more.

 

Two new outfits were among five French firms singled out by CES for their innovation. Lima makes a hardware adapter and a multi-platform app that allows people to have the same files on all their devices, regardless of operating system or storage capacity. Voxtok produces a top-quality audio box for playing stored music, a sort of “connected jukebox”. Then there is SlowControl’s smart baby bottle that tracks the amount of milk an infant consumes. Emiota is presenting a prototype belt that measures changes in the size of the wearer’s waist and adjusts accordingly. Cityzen Sciences produces a tee-shirt that tracks the heartbeat. All in all, the French offering is varied but with a particular strength in connected objects.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

@theEconomist might not yet turn francophile, yet such a "paper" on @LaFrenchTech is as unexpected as welcome as they join the already fantastic US coverage of #FrenchTech companies taking Vegas and #CES by storm. I'm proud of what @CaisseDesDepots ignited 18 months ago.

Withings Aura uses light, sound, and science to help you sleep better #CES

Withings Aura uses light, sound, and science to help you sleep better #CES | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

As for the lamp itself, it's both a sleep aid and a sleek, touch-sensitive lava lamp. The device glows a shade of red to help you get to sleep — Withings says the wavelength of light helps the body generate melatonin — and for waking it shines a glowing blue.

 

Different shades, from purple to yellow, are available at the user's choice. A standalone iPhone app lets users do things like set wake-up times and view their sleep and environmental data, though the information will also be surfaced in the standard Withings app as well for a bigger picture look at your health (Android compatibility is coming down the line, and the device will be able to connect over legacy Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, or Wi-Fi).

 

In a clever twist, the lamp portion of the device can also play music and serves as a standalone alarm clock even if you aren't using your smartphone. The lamp is sensitive to touch, and you can turn the alarm on or off with a tap, and set the time for your next alarm by sliding your finger up the side of the device.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Combining light, sound and movement, Withings last tracking device is indeed a full system and goes way beyond the existing snoring / sleeping apps. Want to beta test one !

This Amazing Mist Touchscreen Lets You Play Fruit Ninja On A Wall Of Water Vapor

This Amazing Mist Touchscreen Lets You Play Fruit Ninja On A Wall Of Water Vapor | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

A Russian company called Displair has brought its bizarre, wholly innovative vaporizing projector machine to this year's Consumer Electronics Show, and the gizmo is unlike anything else at the enormous tech convention: Basically, you can connect a touchscreen device to a projector, which puts out a touchable image of your device's screen onto a constantly misting wall of vaporized water. You can then interact with the device by running your finger on that wall of mist. It's a strange and totally innovative way to interact with a typical tablet or computer.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Serious vaporware
