A real pride. This Friday, May 10, 2024, the Artha France company won the President of the Republic’s prize, the highest distinction in the Lépine Competition at the Paris Fair.

Revolutionary technology

Based in Paris, this young company, created by Amaury Buget, Gabrielle de Puysegur, Rémi and Wandrille du Chaland, François Outters and Zacharie Nataf, won this prestigious prize thanks to “a technology which offers the visually impaired and the blind a new perception of their environment for greater autonomy. »

Their creation, a pair of glasses equipped with a mini-camera, allows “transforming visual data into tactile sensations via a special belt equipped with transducers. It thus offers users a tactile perception of their environment, improving their autonomy, independence and security,” explains the Competition on its Facebook page.

On Facebook, members of Artha France reacted to their victory. “We are honored to receive this award and look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of what is possible with technology.” »

Second prize was awarded to Simon Buoro and Antoine Escande with their invention: a cyclical shower “Ilya” which reduces the water and energy consumption of a shower by up to 70% thanks to water recycling. Finally, the creation of Benoit Mirambeau completes the last step of the podium. This is an application, “Heritage Tour” which highlights local “micro-heritage”.
