Introducing AnyGlove™ - Touchscreen Gloves in a Bottle

AnyGlove is a revolutionary new product that is easy to use and will turn almost any type of glove into a touchscreen compatible glove. Winter isn’t the only time of year when you might be wearing gloves and most gloves will limit you from using your touchscreen devices. With AnyGlove, you can send texts and use your favorite apps on mobile devices, like the iPhone 5, iPad, iPad Mini and Galaxy S3, with almost any glove, anytime of the year. Skiing, cycling, mountain biking, gardening, workouts at the gym; why be inconvenienced if you don’t have to?

The AnyGlove liquid can be applied to any finger(s) or part of the glove you want to work with a touchscreen and a single application can last for weeks, even months, depending on the type of gloves and how you use them. AnyGlove can be reapplied at any time, as needed, to restore full functionality throughout the useful life of the glove. It’s that simple. AnyGlove works great on many different types of materials; fleece, knits, synthetic suede and more. AnyGlove is available for less than $20.00 (USD) and a single bottle can treat multiple pairs of gloves, making it a great value.

AnyGlove has been successfully tested on dozens of different types of gloves, from light weight liners, like The North Face® Fleece and Knit Liner gloves to winter sport, like the Mountain Hard Wear® Power Stretch® with Polartec®, Nike Dri-Fit and Therma-Fit Running Gloves, Fox® Incline Cycling gloves, Grease Monkey™ heavy duty work gloves and more.

While a wide array of touchscreen gloves is available today, most fall short of customer expectations according to dozens of online reviews. Common complaints about today’s touchscreen gloves include: they lack warmth; they don’t fit well; they fall apart easily; the patch or threads in the fingers are unattractive and unsightly; they work for a short time but then stop working. So why are these gloves so popular? Because people want to keep their gloves on when they use touchscreens, so they purchase the only products available to them…until now. AnyGlove is not only affordable; it gives the individual the choice to make any finger, or all ten, touchscreen compatible.

AnyGlove was originally developed for work gloves, but works equally well on gloves used for a variety of different types of activities and occupations. “One of the product testers is employed by a major airline as a baggage handler and generally wears work gloves all day long. He was constantly plagued with having to take off his gloves every time he needed to send a text or make/take a call, which was a major inconvenience for him,” stated Aaron Baker, a member of the product development team at AnyGlove. “During our initial research, we learned that there are many occupations where people must wear gloves as part of their job and easily go through gloves every two or three months. This includes airline baggage handlers, UPS and FedEx drivers, shipping clerks, warehouse workers, and many others. Since there are very few affordable touchscreen glove options for these guys, we saw an opportunity to take a different approach to solving the problem. Not via conductive patches or threads, which we knew wouldn’t last for more than a few days. We needed to develop something that would impregnate the actual glove material itself and if necessary, could be reapplied over and over, providing touchscreen glove functionality throughout the usable life of the glove. Our solution resulted in the creation of AnyGlove, which has been very well received,” said Baker.

AnyGlove can be purchased now online at retail giant Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk. Plans are underway to expand availability of AnyGlove into other geographical markets and retail channels during the coming year.

AnyGlove will be demonstrating its product at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market Show 2013, Booth# BR818, January 23-26, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...
Artificial Intelligence has the potential to massively disrupt IoT.
