From January 5th to 8th, Las Vegas hosted the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s largest innovation fair. An international showcase for the technology industry where Toulouse start-ups were well represented. Carole Delga, the President of the Occitanie Region, traveled to Las Vegas to support them in their development. La Dépêche Eco met these nuggets installed in the Eureka pavilion at the fair.

This Sunday, January 8, CES Las Vegas closed with a more than positive balance. Around 3,000 exhibitors and more than 140,000 visitors toured the 18 hectares of the 53and edition of the great route of technology. La Dépêche Eco went to see the seven Toulouse nuggets present at the fair.

Founded by Stéphane Hersen, former director of development at aircraft manufacturer Airbus, Skyted has developed a mask with a built-in microphone capable of discreetly making phone calls. “We miniaturize the silencers that are inside aircraft engines to integrate them into a mask”, summarizes the founder of Skyted. It now has its presence at CES to raise a few million euros, necessary to develop its R&D branch and establish partnerships with major airlines.

The start-up has developed a printable nanotechnology pressure sensor. “The idea is to make any surface or material interactive”, summarizes Adrien Thirion, an engineer at the Nanomade Lab. The nugget, which is mainly aimed at the aeronautical and automotive sector, hopes that its presence at CES will be a real accelerator. “We now intend to raise between two and four million euros to open a new production line in Toulouse. The objective is to produce one million sensors a year”.

Cybersecurity expert, Dappy “develops domain names to offer an alternative to the classic DNS, ie .com, .fr, .net…”, explains Nicolas Morizot, co-founder of the start-up. Ending with “.d”, this new domain name is based on the blockchain to ensure more security for companies. “We are hoping to gain visibility through CES to partner with a great company. If the technological need is confirmed, it will be necessary to raise between 500 thousand and one million euros again by the end of the year to be able to accelerate”, calculates the co-founder.
