It is essential for us, humans, to keep ourselves warm, so during winter, we don on our winter wear. When it is warm, we dress casually and we do not have a problem using our electronic gadgets. However, donning our thick winter wear? Traditionally, gloves have been a problem with touch screen devices and of late, there have been gloves tackling this issue by introducing capacitive friendly materials. However what Patrick and his team here have come up with, is not only simple, but also useful!
Unlike the new solutions to tackle just touch screen use, with NFC (Near Field Communication) becoming more prevalent in phones, they want to maximize the use of it and add even more convenience, customization to your life!
With NFC chips placed strategically and discretely around the glove, it adds a sense of style and secrecy to your glove. Just by tapping on a certain part of the glove, you can do so much more, not only on your phone, but also on any other active NFC tags!
Configuring with your BlackBerry 7/7.1* or BlackBerry 10* is extremely simple. Just download the BlackBerry Smart Tag (for simple commands) or NFCShortCuts (more advanced for OS 7/7.1 devices, costs us$0.99) and you can customize the NFC tags to do your commands!
*Your BlackBerry Device must come with NFC radio.
We will be reviewing the product once it is available in the coming weeks but if gloves and convenience is your thing, do check this one out right now!
