During the 2016 edition, the startup Technis exposed a connected carpet dedicated to sport flooring. The young company decided during the fair to spin-off their technology and programmed on the spot a visitors counting carpet solution, that we have set up under the main gate. In 2017, Technis counting product were installed at all lab entrances, allowing the compilation of data and giving invaluable analytics. During the 2017 fair the Lab has asked Technis to jump on another adventure, the implementation of Technis carpet as triggers for an interactive LED installation. Stepping in the world of scenography, today Technis is also exploring this vertical and together with the Lab is able to offer great event solutions to their clients.

We are happy to follow Technis on their road to success.


In 2016 Joe Levy is recruited by “Le Lab” in roder to organize and deliver innovation workshops. Additionally, he was asked to produced a VR simulation game for “La Protection Civile du Canton Vaud”
After successfully completing the tasks, Cinedit VA GmbH was funded in order to exclusively develop VR simulations and analyze CCTV images for the public safety sector.
Today Cinedit created and launched its own deep learning algorithms that can detect terrorist attacks. Their product named Vantage Systems is currently deployed in Israel and is available for smart cities.
Since then, Cinedit also became the VR backbone of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
