Touchpoint 2.0 – Touch enabled winter gloves as smart as your phone
How many times has it happened that you have to use your phone in the chilling winter and it just kills you to move those fingers over the touchscreen. Under normal circumstances you wouldn’t expect your smartphone to respond well to the touch of a glove because it is not meant to do so. Even if it does, then the experience won’t be that smooth. Now you might have got an idea of what’s coming your way. A smart glove that is NFC enabled and makes using your smartphone in the cold a very pleasing experience.
Touchpoint 2.0 leather gloves created by Patrick Lum make using your smartphone butter smooth and with added functionality of gesture control, these gloves will become your favorite accessory to have at all times during the winter season. Tailor-made for people who use their phone quite frequently outdoors, it comes with a plethora of gesture controls to initiate different functions.
For example clicking a picture, toggling the screen brightness, call, text or start navigation function. You can also start your favorite apps with just a tap at a particular point on the glove. The water resistant gloves are made from handcrafted sheepskin leather exterior in matte black color and with extra soft fleece layer for warmth and comfort.
Thankfully the gloves are up on Kickstarter for funding and you can get them for as less as $65 USD in two options – Rider Style and Classic Quilt. The project has just been a few hours into the funding zone and already it has gobbled-up four times the funding goal with almost 39 more days to go. So, you can expect the Touchpoint 2.0 leather gloves to be a big hit this winter season and perhaps many more to come.
