CES 2018 in Las Vegas: French people and connected objects

News Robotic

You may not know it, but in January, CES 2018 took place in Las Vegas. The world's largest gathering around robotics, where no less than 870 companies present their innovations.

What can be said is that this year, even more than the previous one, the French were extremely well represented and did not go unnoticed. Let's take a look at the French startups that marked the CES in Las Vegas this year.

Not always positive articles about the strong presence of the French at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas are coming out everywhere. Connected objects, mobility, virtual reality or e-health are some of the sectors in which France has distinguished itself on a global scale.

Among the 875 companies present, 275 French companies, or 31%, are present. The United States is the most represented country with 289 companies, followed by the 60 companies from the Netherlands.

Special mention for a Chinese fighting toy robot that made a lasting impression and was relayed by FrAndroid. In the same vein as the GEIO FPS robot we talked about here, it is a small robot that can be controlled with your smartphone via an Android application. The goal is to face your friends in a fun robot fight:

  • Activate your shield
  • Launching attacks
  • Shooting at opponents

The Smartphone application in addition to control serves as an additional indicator such as the display of the remaining life or the result of the fight. An innovation that goes beyond the beaten track and over-represented connected objects at this Consumer Electronics Show.
