high performance gloves while maintaining dexterity
November 26, 2010 6:52 PM Subscribe
What's the cutting edge in gloves that allow for high levels of dexterity in extreme conditions (e.g. north pole). A colleague and I have been thinking up creative ways to allow high levels of dexterity while keeping the insulation factor high. Say you're a worker that has to work outdoors in extreme conditions for periods of up to an hour, yet you need to be able to work with hand tools, press buttons, etc.
Is there an industry standard for this sort of thing?
Anyone have any info on state of the art (or near future) technology in this area?
