Gear Buzz: Gaugewear

Tinker with digital toys without freezing your fingers off with this new wearable.

By |

We’ve all been there—that miserable moment on the slopes when you have to yank off your toasty gloves, dig your phone or iPod from your pocket, and fumble through your playlist with frozen fingers. Happily, Gaugewear in Boulder has partnered with the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering to develop a line of sensor-based wearable technology that can solve your frostbite woes. The design, a single strip of conductive fabric, integrates easily with outdoor apparel and responds to simple motions like swipes and taps to control your electronic device via radio frequency. So next time you need to hit record on your GoPro or start your watch timer on a run, don’t worry about peeling back the layers and hunting for a button. Keep the gloves on, swipe your sleeve, and simply go.
