Too Cool To Chill? Conductive Gloves Keep You Warm While Making You Stay In Touch-Mode
Dutch-based Mujjo, an online start-up with a spin on high-tech conductive gloves, allows the wearer to "use all your fingertips, your knuckles and even the heel or the palm of your hand" even while wearing the gloves to operate a touchscreen device.
Touchscreen winter gloves in previous seasons have only allowed the wearer to operate screens with one or two fingers from each hand. These new touchscreen gloves by Mujjo provide the wearer with more options for use since all areas of the glove are usable.
The Mujjo gloves have better distribution of conductive materials than previous designs of touchscreen-friendly gloves. They have silver-coated nylon fibers woven into the fabric, and compared to other current designs of conductive glove, appear to be more sleek, stylish and fitted.
The October 31, 2011 press release for Mujjo's Conductive Gloves calls this model of glove a "next generation" of glove. While there does appear to be some competition in this market, their niche is in being a more stylish wardrobe enhancing version, and perhaps one that will work on larger devices due to the distribution of conductive fibers throughout the glove. The price is hefty compared to some of the competition. Priced at 24.95 euros (about $34), which is close to twice that of other gloves on the market.
A quick review of Mujjo's website provides a snapshot of products for use with mobility devices. Mujjo claims to have specialties in design, branding and marketing, with a sales pitch of young creative ambition... they promote stylish functionality.
One could say they enable a market to "stay in touch," technically, and fashionably.
