Paris – Sensitive Object™ (www.sensitive-object.com), announces OSEO Anvar’s support. OSEO anvar has decided to allocate 450.000 € to the ReverSysTM company ito accelerate the development of the company’s products.

Created in 2003 by a team from the CNRS and the University of Paris 7, Sensitive ObjectTM has developed an original and innovative technology that should very quickly improve our comfort using a natural sense, the sense of the touch.

A lamp which answers a table, a television which obeys an armchair and here we have it, our furniture become communicative. A simple "tap" on a hard surface and our every day objects take life to put information at our fingertips... Many other man-machine interface (MMI) examples are available thanks to ReverSysTM., the technology based on the temporal reversal of acoustic waves, developed by Sensitive Object TM.

"Sensitive Object TM is clearly a strong potential project, based on a breakthrough technology, and high scientific level. Our analysis highlighted important assets in terms of management and of intellectual property. The company should reach a good positioning on future markets" declares Genevieve Gelly, Regional director, OSEO anvar.

Hubert Cospain, CEO of Sensitive Object adds "In less than 2 years, Sensitive Object gained substantial successes, in particular with the arrival of Sofinnova Partners in our capital and the passage of our technology in phase of product development. It remains to us that there are still obstacles to be crossed before seeing our products exposed, but I am happy to note that our technology is recognized right now" This announcement, which intervenes at the same time as the appointment of Herve Praud (Directing Industrialist), the moving to Boulogne and the setting of the new Web site of Sensitive ObjectTM confirms the dynamism of the company, and its will of passing from a laboratory project to an enterprise.
