Our Vision is to enable people to enjoy music during any activity by enhancing the user experience through seamless device interaction, operational simplicity, and price accessibility
The glove was originally Ben's idea, born out of simple frustration: listening to music while skiing/boarding is hard. If you want to change songs or pause, you have to fish your phone out of your pocket and risk dropping it in the snow. He wanted to make a glove where you could control your music by simply touching your fingertips together.
In 2009, Ben gave Eric his usual, “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” ideas and Eric shrugged it off. It wasn’t until the next few seasons when they were skiing together when Ben said, “See! What a pain it is to deal with your music while you’re riding. Let’s do this.” Eric thought about it for a moment and said, “You know… I think we could really do it”. GoGlove was born. After the first round of testing on the mountain, they were both hooked and decided to develop the product with the goal of changing the way we listen to music on the mountain.
Today, GoGlove is making it easier to control your mobile device through no-touch technology, wirelessly. We believe in music. It makes the moment. The right song, at the right time, can elevate a bland moment to the surreal. Life has a soundtrack. Control yours.
The capabilities of the GoGlove can go beyond music and the mountain. Any activity where you need to interact with your mobile device can be enhanced with the GoGlove. Running, Biking, Motorcycle riding, Snowmobiling, Skydiving, Construction, anything active. And with open source code, any app can use the GoGlove to control from a distance. Maybe it’s a running app that can tell you how far you have run with a simple tap or a camera can start recording with a snap. Imagine what this product can do…
Accessible – Listen to music throughout your day no matter what you’re doing
Simple – Tap and go
Versatile – Can be used on its own or under another glove
Customizable – Pick the control for each finger
Expandable - Open source code allows developers to create apps that allow interaction with their product/device
Safety – No more reaching in your pocket
We're cousins who spent an inordinate amount of time together as kids given that we grew up on opposite coasts. Ben, born in Chicago and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA, and Eric, born and raised in Wilmington, DE, spent summers at the Jersey shore and winters in PA, skiing all over the country together. Currently, we live close to each other in New England and are giving our kids to same chance to grow up close. Ben is the Dreamer and Eric is the Engineer, with years of developing and marketing between them. We are excited to bring the GoGlove to you!
