SELF RELIANT GLOVE

iF concept design award 2013

The Self-Reliant Glove is a smart glove equipped with a sensor and an actuator to amplify and translate the slightest motion of the fingers into firm action. It uses the sense of touch, pressure and position to reinforce the strength, smoothness and complexity of the human grip. This glove would be crafted from a high-strength polyester nanofibre that offers excellent frictional properties, soft texture, as well as the absorption and diffusion of moisture for added comfort.

We are ecstatic to be part of the group of elite designers recognized and awarded by IF. This award validates the prospective impact that our design aspires to create. We feel positive to continue applying our design thinking to socially relevant ideas that can transform lives.
