Tech Talk: iGloves
Posted January 6, 2009on:
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope this year brings you lots of happiness and great health.
I was on my way to work yesterday when I heard about Apple’s new patented product: iGloves.
This isn’t the first time someone’s invented gloves for the iPhone. Marmot made gloves in 2006 for the iPhone, known as the iGlove Multi. BUT Apple is staking their claim to their iPhone accessories.
iGloves are the answer to my cold fingers’ problem. Whenever I want to use my iPhone, I have to take my gloves off – call whomever – and then put my gloves back on. I love my iPhone, but it is a pain to use during the winter.
If you look closely at the thumb and pointer finger areas, you can see the “Dots” that enable to you use your iPhone with these gloves on. The gloves come in either knit ($15) or woolen ($20). (img from http://www.dotsgloves.com/)
This is really exciting! I might go ahead and make a purchase myself. If you have a pair – please let me know if they’re as great as I hope they would be!
MaR_advice: It’s time to make smart purchases and this would be one. It fulfills two things: keeps your hands warm AND allows you to use your iPhone at the same time. It’s a smart product and smart accessory.
