Description of Startup:

Bluemint Labs presents ‘bixi’: the first contact-less smart object that simplifies connected life using intuitive gesture recognition. This compact and robust companion allows users to interact with their connected environment when their hands are occupied (e.g. cooking, driving), covered with gloves (e.g. working, biking) or dirty (e.g. cleaning, gardening).

At the heart of this innovation lies the intelligent gesture recognition. Users only need to make intuitive, simple gestures above ‘bixi’ to manage their smartphones, tablets, personal computers or other connected objects such as Philips Hue or a GoPro.
