"The Smart Way to Fight Home Hacking."
You are an easy target. Did you know half of us had their information exposed by hackers in 2014? If you own wireless devices like baby monitors, smart TVs, thermostats or any other kind of home connected product; you are an easy target for hackers.
CUJO is a smart learning Internet security device, built to protect all connected home devices against hacks, malware and viruses. Playing cheekily off of the infamous rabid canine, it is inspired by the idea of a pet dog that fervently protects our home and us. It is a constant but benign presence, until the moment it is needed to work. Most of the time a pet dog is sleeping. Its eyes are restful, ears down, just humming along. Only when alerted by an anomalous activity, its demeanor changes from dormant to aware: eyes wide, ears at attention, focused and alert. It may bark to scare off an impending threat or it may leap into action. CUJO was designed with this character in mind. The physical form is intentionally sublime and takes in the semantics of familiar household vessels.
CUJO’s sophisticated technology seamlessly assimilates into your home network simply by connecting to your existing router. Only one device to secure your entire home network. Once connected to your router, all of your wired and wireless Internet connected devices are protected by CUJO. The app offers on-the-go access to your home Internet security and management. CUJO monitors all devices on your network and sends alerts when threats are detected; providing real-time protection to block hacks and malicious sites. CUJO is in continuous improvement, constantly adapts to block new threats so your home is always protected.

“Let Graava save your best Memories.”
Think of how your brain makes memories. You can recall certain moments with crystal clarity: when your child was born, your first road trip with friends, that epic burrito you had at Chipotle. And other moments—like your commute—are so mundane that you forget them instantly.
Graava, a new wearable camera, wants to change the way we record our memories by highlighting only the best ones. While other competitor assures you that every memorable moment of your surf trip is caught on film, it also assures that you'll have to wade through hours of floating in the water waiting for that perfect wave to come. Producing a minute of content takes an hour of work.
Graava uses artificial intelligence and sensors to infer what you would remember only, and crafts a highlight reel from the footage. And great experiences are better with good music. Through the App, select your favorites tunes and let Graava sync your video clip to it. Graava can also use footages from two or more cameras and seamlessly and automatically combines them to show multiple point-of-views in the same final video clip.
From an industrial design point of view, Graava is based on the form of something that feels good in your hands: a bar of soap. There is no seam slicing the body in half. Buttons and connectors are relegated to the top and bottom. Place Graava on its magnetic wireless charger stand and it automatically starts synchronizing your files to the cloud or to your computer. Graava comes with three different mounts that change the character of the camera based on how you want to use it: Strap it to your handlebars, clip it to your pocket, or use the adhesive bracket to stick it to any hard surface.
One more thing... Even if you are not in action, Graava never goes into the drawer. Tap "home monitor mode" in the app and it becomes a home monitoring camera.

"Get paid anywhere."
PayPal Here is the easiest way to accept any form of payment. Wherever your business goes, your sales can go too.
Use PayPal Here to accept credit and debit cards in-person, at the counter or on the go. And grow your business by accepting all major payment types, including mobile payments.
Most payment transactions are disconnected and confusing, with PayPal Here we sought to create an ecosystem where all elements are clear, simple, consistent and a pleasure to use. The design follows an arrow-like form that references the physical world where payments happen one-on-one, and also the virtual cloud world that enables these new forms of payments.

This last two years, I broke two of my external hard drive just because they fell from less than 40cm... Two times, I lost part of my life...what about you?
Also, do you know what to do with this wire when you're not using it? Because I don't...
With EWY you can imagine a life with no fear through a more intuitive use. I have been inspired by the airless tire concept from Michelin for two reasons, create a shockproof case and also to suggest three variations via a cheap process. Also, in term of user experience, EWY offers a smart cable management, according to how you use your EHDD you will always have the good length of wire.
EWY is a product focused on its function but also fitting the aesthetic you like.
And it is everywhere with you.

Everyday, you're using your computer to create. You need power, comfort and accuracy. But you're also a big fan of the tablet experience, the ease, the mobility and the fun.
What if you could do both with the same device?
Imagine a product which finally use the transparent screen technology for good reasons.
Imagine to find ways to make it as thin, light and comfortable as a tablet.
The concept Surfaces allows an access to the screen from inside AND outside; without adding a fragile mechanic hinge. Also, with the removable cover you keep the visual comfort of a pure dark background. With Surfaces it's easier to share or show a presentation.
You produce better at work and relax more at home.

Some brands as Vertu are offering very high range smartphone services, but wealthy people are most of the time just buying iPhones.
What would seduce them more?
Elega is an offer based on ultra high range service and smartphone for the most wealthy people.
We concentrated the best future existing technologies in a minimal and pure smartphone, adding a subtle grandiosity with the "levitating" heart. This smartphone is just an interface connected to satellites, itself always connected to the center of intelligence: Cloud computing.
We also offer a wearable tech-wristband to enhance the experience. You hear with it thanks to the bone sound conduction and you can talk to it instead of the smartphone. This is more than a high-tech product, this is wearing fine details and materials.
We finally created something more than what they were expecting, this is luxury.

In France, when you think about internet offer it used to be about the price and the service only. So every offer ends up being the same, except for one, Free with Philippe Starck who also focused his work on the product to seduce the consumers.
What is the next step? User Experience?
In partnership with technicolor, we designed a box based on modularity with the objective of fitting your profile needs, who ever you are.
Primiboh is an evolutive and adaptive offer, full of useful features.
The smart removable screen allows you to make the box more discreet, like most of the current users. However we designed Primiboh from very domestic inspiration, mixing hard and soft materials, and playing with graphic elements; in order to easily fit a home environment. The trickiest part was to make the modularity invisible. The flexible cover seemed to be an ideal evolutive solution, supporting others features as the cable management...
Finally, through adapting connectors, Primiboh can be transposed in every home all around the world.

We've all experienced the situation of annoying someone because being too loud while listening/watching something. "Kids are watching their cartoons but you had a very stressful day and you need some calm. You want to watch the soccer game while your girlfriend would like to read, listening some musics."
How to satisfy everybody at home?
A4 has been engineered to increase convenience and sound pollution reduction. Not filling up the entire room with your sound (noise) anymore. Then, instead of having immobile sources you can lay out the sources however/wherever you want and even more focusing of the sound emission.
The cylindrical flaring shape, is stabilized by a larger wooden ring, which also provides a handle for the user. Wireless, each speakers can be moved all over the house, connected to your smartphone or any other device. You can also split the audio sources, allowing you to watch a show when someone else is listening music for example.
A4 change the way to hear at home.

It has been decades now since energy is a crucial matter. Tourism is one of the sectors which didn't suffer from crisis, we'll continue to travel for obligation or for pleasure, forever. But travelling is one of the biggest energy consumer area.
How to accommodate both?
Our promise is to bring people to a world they've never really seen before, with a positive and slow effect on the earth. How? With a vertical journey! Indeed, just 10km up to your head there is the sky, the clouds, the sun, the pure air...have you ever really been there?
Lightcloud is an extraerostat which brings beyond the clouds, you will discover a new vision of the sky.
Because obviously lightcloud is a concept only, we focused our work on the experience; "how to really enjoy every aspects of the sky at human scale?". This airship is designed in order to fit as much as possible everything we could imagine to offer.
Lightcloud is pure dreaming, although it is based on actual expectations.
