Hello and welcome! Shaking off those pesky first-post jitters, Agloves is here! To answer the question of “why are we here?” lets think about something.
It has been three years since Apple changed the face of human-computer interaction by bringing the first major capacitive touchscreen device to the market. Whether you are an Apple fan or not nobody can deny the iPhone truly changed the way devices are used. Since then capacitive touchscreens have popped up everywhere. From phones to media players, GPS devices to game systems, your life lives on touch. Heck, I even used a capacitive screen to order a drink at a bar recently. In short, touchscreens control our world. Isn’t it time that our gloves caught up? You shouldn’t need a special pair of gloves to use your devices in the cold. You shouldn’t need to have your hands look like props from Tron in order to access your life. Everyday gloves can do these things while keeping your hands warm, they just need a little help.
Agloves are not here to be the gloves you use solely with your iPhone. Agloves are not simply the gloves you use with your Droid, your TomTom, or your Zune when it gets cold. Agloves are the same gloves you have used your whole life. They’re the same soft, comfortable gloves that keep you warm when the weather gets chilly. They’ve just been reimagined and redesigned for the world we live in today. The Ag in Agloves is for Silver, which is the most conductive element on the planet. By threading silver throughout each pair, Agloves allow you to conduct yourself as usual while keeping your fingers warm and comfortable no matter the temperature outside.
As you can tell, this has been our first blog post, the first of many. Over the coming months this blog will provide you with tips and tricks for using your devices in the cold, news on Agloves and touch-tech related subjects, and provide answers to any questions you may have. We’ll try to be entertaining too. Thanks for stopping by!
