Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2009

Measurement Gloves keep measurements at your fingertipsSome things in life are tough. Like math. Measurements.

Sensor-equipped Footballs may make Refs obsoleteWe’ve all seen a ref make a bad call at their team’s expense. It sucks. NFL refs aren’t perfect. But footballs and gloves with built-in sensors will make it easier for them as well as put some out of business. It might even mark an end to coach’s challenges. Dr. Priya Narasimhan of Carnegie Mellon University has developed this football and gloves, outfitting them with wireless sensors that can precisely determine whether or not a ball hit the ground before being caught or whether or not someone had control of the ball before fumbling. Using GPS, they could also determine whether or not the ball crossed the goal line.

The same kind of sensors could easily be adapted to shoes, used to measure stride and running patterns, or even in shoulder pads, calculating blocking positions and force.

ezGear Wii Boxing glovesCheck out these ezGear Wii Boxing Gloves. The picture seems to suggest that they make girls twice as hot, while arming them for a good ass-kicking. Yours, if you get out of line. Style-wise they beat the hell out of the old inflatable Wii Boxing gloves. They also look far more comfortable then real Boxing gloves, and should give you a more realistic experience when you play Wii Boxing.

Eye of the tiger baby. You can win Rock. Just slip the Wii-remote and Nunchuk into the gloves or you can use them while holding the Nunchuk and Wiimote. But why would you want to? If only the girl in the pic would play with me. I call her out right now like Clubber Lang challenging Rocky. She might take up the challenge. Probably figures I’m frail from a life of blogging. Which I am, but I’m training.

Keyboard Fingertip GlovesIt’s a conundrum that has plagued musicians for years. You love your keyboard, but it’s just too big to take with you. That’s why some forward thinking geek took it upon himself to create these gloves instead of make love to a girl. The Fingertip Keyboard Gloves are probably a good way to keep your kids busy and out of your hair while they try to make music. They play musical notes when the fingertips are tapped against almost any flat surface.

Apparently, individual gloves can play an entire octave in the key of C, and pressing the heel of the hand will change the middle three fingers to final notes A, B and C. Both gloves are hooked up to an speaker via a wire, which should give you enough volume for a small concert in your personal space. The device charges via USB and costs $69.95. Now that these gloves have arrived, it’s time to hook them up to a video game like Guitar Hero so we can watch Beethoven rock out to your jams.
