It is not a secret that working in cramped spaces can present lighting challenges. Flashlights and headlamps can help provide some visibility, but between taking up your already limited space, creating shadows on the working surface, or requiring you to work one-handed…these are less than an ideal solutions.
This is why you need a Glove Light! At the push of a button you’ll get bright LED lighting that illuminates whatever you’re working on. It gives you the freedom to work with both hands without taking up any additional space. Plus, with multiple sources of light, you won’t cast odd shadows across your workspace.
The Glove Light emits light in multiple directions, so you will be visible to everyone in the dark—not just to those who are directly in line, as with a flashlight or headlamp beam. When you are working in the dark, you are safer when others can clearly see you.
Tim and TJ met while working for a major aerospace company. While there, they bonded over mutual interests in business, gadgets, machinery, and innovations. Their shared interests carried over to their off-hours as they found themselves working together on various projects and bouncing crazy ideas off each other.
One such idea was the need for better portable lighting. Tim is one of those night-running people and TJ is a former mechanic who still likes to tinker. Despite these vastly different hobbies, they each found that flashlights, lanterns, and headlamps just didn't cut it. They both wanted devices that were hands-free, flexible, and lightweight. Plus, Tim really wanted to be visible from all directions on his runs.
One day the guys decided to go for it, and proceeded to convert TJ’s dining room and garage into their own R&D lab. After buying electronic components and starter kits, they dove into electrical engineering and textile manufacturing. Following many nights of soldering, adhesive testing, sewing, and creating/rejecting designs, they developed a prototype that worked great for both of their needs.
In 2016, Tim and TJ decided it would be worthwhile to share their invention with others. They worked with a professional electrical engineer to streamline and refine the design into a more universal product. Now they’re turning to crowdfunding to gauge market interest and raise the capital needed to bring the T² Glove Light to the masses. This is your chance to help bring a new product to life and illuminate the world with your fingertips.
