Using your smartphone or any remote control while you’re wearing gloves is not that easy. What if your gloves work as remote controls? Yes, we are talking about BearTek Gen II, the smart gloves whose version I was shown in the famous reality show Shark Tank. These pair of gloves are not as ordinary as they look. Using them you can remotely control your smartphone with just a few finger movements. You don’t even need to touch your phone; instead, you just have to touch the spots on the gloves to trigger a particular action.
This second-generation lineup of BearTek’s smart gloves comes with a different style for different users. Depending on the model, the connectivity of your gloves could be via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. You can also customize them to your own specific needs. Now, what can you do with them? The answer, reject or hang-up your phone, whatever you want just pressing a spot on your gloves. Change the volume of your media player, activate Siri, or share your content via social media.
Using the gloves with one hand is very convenient. You can tap the touch points placed on the glove’s fingers to control your operation. You can control your iPhone or any Android Smartphone with the gloves as well as your GoPro cameras to trigger your recording with very little hassle.
The new generation smart gloves are submitted to Indiegogo for fundraising. Targeting $40,000 they have raised more than $31,000 so far. The device is up for $99 including an early bird unit at 56% off retail. And the possible shipping is estimated this November.
