A new Kickstarter opportunity offers a great device for use on the slopes. GoGlove is a wearable Bluetooth enabled glove which allows the wearer to seamlessly interact with a mobile device. The innovators claim that the idea came “from our frustration of dealing with music while skiing. There’s nothing like flying down the mountain with your favorite tunes but it’s such a pain to interact with your device when its in your pocket.”
With sensors placed in the fingertips and a magnet in the thumb, you can control any music app with a simple tap. Each finger has single and double tap functionality. It promises to be great for running, biking, or any active sport while listening to music. They have working prototypes and claim that the true test was a ski trip to Utah last winter where we the glove was used for a full week of skiing.
Look for a review when we receive our order to be delivered in time for the upcoming ski season. But don’t wait for the snow – see it in action at: http://www.goglove.io/ and be sure to consider supporting these guys on Kickstarter!
