“BEARTek gloves now provide skiers the convenience of accepting and making calls or adjusting music"
DALLAS, Texas (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Blue Infusion Technologies, an inventive company specializing in enhancing the experiences through the use of technology, is preparing to officially launch its flagship product, BEARTek Gloves. Made in the USA, the signature Bluetooth enabled audio regulation gloves are designed for use during winter sports like skiing and snowboarding and will be available Nov.12, 2012 through Dec. 15, 2012 on Kickstarter.com an online funding platform for creative projects. The company’s second glove collection for motorcyclists is set to premier in the Spring of 2013.
“As a motorcyclist, it has always been difficult to operate my cell phone or music device without having to move my hands from the handle bars of my bike,” said Willie Blount, inventor, Founder and CEO of Blue Infusion Technologies. “BEARTek Gloves will now provide motorcyclist the convenience and safety of operating any smartphone or Bluetooth music device with simple finger touches on the glove.”
Recently featured on premier technology online communities Gizmodo and Trend Hunter, BEARTek Gloves and its groundbreaking concept are creating quite the technology buzz. Inside this professionally designed glove is the removable Bluetooth control module that serves as the “brain” that pairs to phone and music devices, allowing ski and motorcycle enthusiasts to become real-time controllers of Bluetooth smart products such as iPhones and Android products. By intuitively tapping the thumb to one of the six touch points strategically embedded along the fingers of the glove, users can continue mobile activities like skiing and motorcycling during various real life scenarios, such as accepting incoming phone calls, switching music playlists, or enabling audio controls. In contrast to a traditional glove that is often bulky, restrictive and negatively impacts the control of a smart device, BEARTek Gloves are based on the concept of single-hand control that enables improved convenience and safety.
“As a skier, I often miss incoming calls as I attempt to pull my phone from my pocket while going down a slope, and sometimes I’m forced to pull off to the side to adjust my music,” said Tarik Rodgers, Partner and COO of Blue Infusion Technologies. “BEARTek gloves now provide skiers the convenience of accepting and making calls or adjusting music without having to pull off to the side of the slope, take off a glove in the freezing cold, all to then pull the phone from a pocket just to return a missed call. An even scarier concern is dropping my phone or glove while on a ski lift. Now my glove stays on my hand and my phone remains in my pocket.”
BEARTek Gloves include an array of key elements and features. Consisting of exceptional quality and detail, the gloves have been designed by top industry developers with a long portfolio of clients that include Yamaha, Harley Davidson, Burton, Gorgonz and Ralph Lauren. A completely wireless solution, BEARTek Gloves are also compatible with Bluetooth headsets and Bluetooth helmets. In addition, the removable Bluetooth module allows for easy system upgrades. It may simply be transferred to any BEARTek Glove available in a variety of colors, without the need to buy an additional module with each new pair. BEARTek Gloves have also had developmental support by key PhD and NASA scientist resources from the Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) and the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP).

In high-tech fashion, BEARTek Gloves will premier Nov.12, 2012 on Kickstarter through an online campaign where interested parties will have the exclusive opportunity to own a pair of gloves, while concurrently supporting the mission of getting BEARTek Gloves manufactured, in stores and on the hands of all ski and motorcycle enthusiasts. By making designated monetary donations (Kickstarter Rewards) that will be applied towards the funding of the company’s vision, supporters will become one of the first to receive pairs of the cutting-edge Bluetooth BEARTek Gloves with delivery just in time for this holiday and winter season. Blue Infusion Technologies will not make the ski gloves widely available until next season, so this campaign will be the only opportunity for supporters to get these premier winter gloves. The BEARTek Gloves online Kickstarter campaign launch will take place Nov.12, 2012 through Dec.15, 2012. BEARTek Gloves will be available for a $150 minimum donation at http://www.kickstarter.com throughout that timeframe.
