From Touch Gloves to Touch Work Gloves for Industry Professionals
When Jean and I started Agloves®, we wanted to create the most accurate, the most precise, touchscreen gloves in the marketplace. Our goal was to provide a hand-warming solution for people who love their iPhone and don’t like typos, sloppiness or being cold.
Now, Agloves has taken our technology to the job site with the introduction of Heavy Duty Grip Touch work gloves, or “AgHD” work gloves. The criterion for construction, agriculture, transportation and utility industries (to name just a few) have changed. Tablets, smartphones and capacitive touchscreen interfaces are becoming a regular tool for workers. Because the workplace has changed, gloves need to change too. The same old glove with fingertips cut out, or retrofitted with conductive finger patches won’t cut it. It’s important to do the job right the first time. Time is money and sloppy gloves are less efficient and lead to errors and excuses.
Agloves in action.
Trimble introduced new capacitive touchscreen devices this year. They came to Agloves for a work glove to accompany their new devices. Agloves are currently offered as an accessory for Trimble’s new smartphone inspired rugged handheld computer, the Juno T41. The Trimble® Juno® T41™ is a includes processing power, data storage and integrated capabilities so workers can do more in the field, the office and everywhere else. It’s available with water and dust resistance, and it meets rigorous MIL-STD-810G standards for resistance to shock, drops, vibration and more.
Trimble serves a variety of industries including agriculture, engineering and construction, transportation and wireless communications infrastructure.Trimble’s Mobile Computing Solutions Division offers innovative products that enable mobile workers to be more efficient in extreme outdoor and industrial environments. The Juno T41, Nomad, Recon, Ranger, and Yuma rugged handheld computers help users collect accurate field data and work more productively in any outdoor or service-related application. Trimble’s handheld computers meet MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-810G military specifications for drops, vibration, immersion and temperature extremes, and with IP65 to IP68 ratings, are protected against water and dust.
When the device is that sturdy, so should your touch screen enabled work gloves.
It’s becoming winter in Australia — time to find some touchscreen gloves.
Normal winter gloves don’t work on touchscreen devices. You may be familiar with you problem: Constantly having to bite off your gloves, shove them into your pockets, and freeze your fingers all because your normal gloves failed to operate your touchscreen smartphone.
But thanks to the technology of an American company, Agloves®, winter gloves now work on touchscreens. Agloves are the top-rated touchscreen glove, currently sold in countries worldwide* and carried by top US mobile carriers such as Verizon, Sprint USCellular.
And new this year, Agloves are now offered in Australia – just in time for winter’s cold.
About Touchscreen Agloves
Two years ago, Agloves – the first 10-finger touchscreen-friendly gloves on the market – introduced a patent-pending technology that connects touchscreen cloth to not only your index and thumb fingers, but to all 10 fingers as well as your palm, wrist and knuckles. Yes, the whole Aglove is touchscreen friendly so you can text, swipe and scroll – without having to expose your fingertips to winter’s cold.
So how does it work? The secret is in the silver. Agloves (a name that plays off the chemical symbol for silver “Ag”) are constructed with a silver-nylon based thread that allows the body’s natural bio-electricity to pass through the gloves and activate the device like an ungloved hand would. This is because touchscreen devices are capacitive, not heat sensitive, as some believe. Capacitive touchscreens register the body’s bio-electricity in the device and map the point of contact. Normal gloves block the electrical communication which results in the device failing to recognized contacts. Silver also is a natural thermal regulator, making the gloves extra warm.
Agloves work on all touchscreens, sometimes even better than your normal hand.
Finally. Some #firstworldsolutions.
After a successful launch on Amazon in the United States, Agloves is heading east, way east, to Amazon Japan.
Officially available this morning on Amazon.co.jp, Agloves will be selling both Agloves Bamboo and Agloves Sport. Japan’s mountainous geography creates a varied climate from a warmer southern region to a much cooler winter region with popular skiing destinations, perfect for the Agloves Sport.
Additionally, the antimicrobial fibers found in the Agloves Bamboo might be popular among the millions of people who use public transportation systems in Japan. Agloves Bamboo are made with 87% antimicrobial materials: silver and bamboo, making the glove a good barrier between public dirt and germs — especially if you still have to use your phone!
