Blue Infusion Technologies, a tech/apparel company, has developed BEARTek audio control gloves. BEARTek gloves solve a problem faced by motorcycle riders, skiers, bicyclists, and others – how to easily control music while wearing gloves. BEARTek gloves use Bluetooth technology to enabling you to safely and easily control a Bluetooth capable smart phone.
BEARTek gloves' design is based around a method of controlling music with a single hand but doesn’t affect the feel of the gloves by adding buttons to the fingertips. Instead, an integrated solution of conductive fabric and a couple of well placed buttons on key areas of the fingers and thumb was revealed. The result is easy fingertip control of the wearer's audio experience.
The first glove series is designed for motorcyclists, however, there are plans to build gloves and accessories around other popular activities such as skiing, cycling, and running. Blue Infusion Technologies is positioning to have BEARTek ski and snowboard gloves available this winter.
Blue Infusion Technologies is currently fundraising. If things go according to plan, pricing and availability will be provided later this year. Stay tuned...
