Retail market and Connected Objects

Retail is experiencing a profound change with Digital Technologies and was the subject of a meeting Retail Market and Connected Objects organized by Pôle SCS on July 5 at Sophia Antipolis (France):

Interesting meeting with a detailed analysis of issues by KPMG, and with Retailers,  namely Sonae and Micromania, illustrating their perspectives by concrete deployment cases in France and abroad.

Key Infuser was present with the robotic platform to demonstrate the real wow effect of our promise.

Phygital becomes a reality; improving the customer experience and reasons for going back to stores suggest more education and demonstration – at heart of Key Infuser’s value proposition.


Technologies at the Innovation Day

The Innovation Day was held on June 2nd at Telecom Paristech Paris.

Form the first year’s student project to the well-established startup, Telecom Paristech Paris students, alumni and special guests discovered a large panel of technological innovation through presentations and discussions.

We were in and  were able to show through a concrete example, KiOne, what sort of incredible power our engineer school gave us. Particularly a pertaining message there as Lidwine Martinot, our CTO, is a Telecom Paristech alumni.



A question from Jean-Luc Vaillant, Linkedin co-founder, to Domitille on people’s motivation to visit stores.


Mixes and Scratches at Distree Connectdays

KIOne faced successfully the challenge proposed by Stéphane Bohbot (Innov8, LICK): demonstrating the mixfader. It is a new connected device for DJs, which is able to mix, scratch together with your phone or tablet. Something difficult to exercise if you don’t have a pro around…

Well, KIOne is not yet one of the best DJs in the world ; but it certainly managed to show in a few seconds the purpose of the connected object to all the Distree Connectdays visitors.

Infusing at Monaco Telecom

huawei smartwatche

Key Infuser developed for Monaco Telecom two demonstrators for their main shop, rue du Gabian in Fontvieille, for the Christmas period from December 10 to 21.

The platforms presented a Huawei SmartWatch and a HTC Re camera. A very simple in-store installation, where you place the demonstrators, plug the power and they initialize themselves without the intervention of technician.

The demonstration that proved to be the most popular was the geolocalization and guidance function by the Huawei watch. And our robotic arm didn’t balk all day long to swipe on the connected watch and indicate on googlemap the route to get to a specific place.

A big thanks to the Monaco Telecom team for their very warm welcome !

Key Infuser at Orange Stores

IMG_0980Good feedbacks at the Orange Start-up days last week where key infuser was present at Orange’s boutiques in Cannes, Antibes and Grasse with their robotised demonstrator. Three key feedbacks for In-Store marketing: Visitors want interactive démos, want to be educated on Connected Objects applications, expect a different experience instore versus text and videos they can watch on Internet.
