Blue Infusion Technologies, an inventive company specializing in enhancing the experiences through the use of technology, has launched the exclusive motorcycle collection of BEARTek Gloves. Made in the USA, the signature Bluetooth enabled audio regulation gloves are designed for use during motorcycling and will be available through Dec. 14, 2012 on KICKSTARTER an online funding platform for creative projects. Set to officially premier in the Spring of 2013, supporters of this online campaign will become the first to own a pair of these groundbreaking gloves for motorcyclists.
“As a motorcyclist, it has always been difficult to operate my cell phone or music device without having to move my hands from the handle bars of my bike,” said Willie Blount, inventor, founder and chief executive officer of Blue Infusion Technologies. “BEARTek Gloves will now provide motorcyclists the convenience and safety of operating any smartphone or Bluetooth music device with simple finger touches on the glove.”
The BEARTek Gloves and its innovative concept have been creating quite the buzz with recent features on several key media outlets including the Discovery Channel Canada, Mashable, SoundCtrl, Gizmodo and TrendHunter. Inside this professionally designed glove is the removable Bluetooth control module that serves as the “brain” that pairs to phone and music devices, allowing motorcycle enthusiasts to become real-time controllers of Bluetooth smart products such as iPhones and Android products. By intuitively tapping the thumb to one of the six touch points strategically embedded along the fingers of the glove, users can continue mobile activities like motorcycling during various real life scenarios, such as accepting incoming phone calls, switching music playlists, or enabling audio controls. In contrast to a traditional glove that is often bulky, restrictive and negatively impacts the control of a smart device, BEARTek Gloves are based on the concept of single-hand control that enables improved convenience and safety.
“BEARTek Gloves provide motorcyclist the convenience and safety of operating a smartphone or Bluetooth music device with simple finger touches on the glove,” said Tarik Rodgers partner and chief operating officer of Blue Infusion Technologies.
BEARTek Gloves include an array of key elements and features. Consisting of exceptional quality and detail, the gloves have been designed by top industry developers with a long portfolio of clients that include Yamaha, Harley Davidson, Burton, Gorgonz and Ralph Lauren. A completely wireless solution, BEARTek Gloves are also compatible with Bluetooth headsets and Bluetooth helmets. In addition, the removable Bluetooth module allows for easy system upgrades. It may simply be transferred to any BEARTek Glove available in a variety of colors and styles, without the need to buy an additional module with each new pair. BEARTek Gloves have also had developmental support by key PhD and NASA scientist resources from the Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) and the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP).

“Our team has put in a numerous amount of time, effort and resources in designing the BEARTek Gloves to meet the needs of motorcycle enthusiasts,” said Blount. “We are extremely excited about premiering the gloves on KICKSTARTER where supporters can begin purchasing pairs of gloves, while concurrently supporting the mission of getting BEARTek Gloves manufactured and in stores throughout the country.”
Through December 14, 2012, the BEARTek Gloves motorcycle and ski collection will be featured on KICKSTARTER, an online funding campaign where interested parties have an exclusive opportunity to become one of the first to own a pair of these cutting-edge gloves by making designated monetary donations (KICKSTARTER Rewards) to apply towards the funding of the company’s vision. With delivery in time for this holiday season, this online funding campaign will be the only opportunity for supporters to get these premier gloves before 2013. BEARTek Gloves are available for a $150 minimum donation on KICKSTARTER through December 14, 2012. In addition, retailers and distributors who support this campaign will have preference for firsts and exclusive relationships.
