Glovdi Technological Innovations
Glovdi started as an idea and a proposal of a Master thesis project. Through the months and prior to final submission of the thesis project, Glovdi is shaped as the device you see now. As this project is clearly made as part of an academic proposal, this device will evolve the following months during a three year research and production campaign specific for IoT(Internet of Things)
Who we are?
Glovdi Technological Innovations is a London based startup, specializing in wearables of the future. By producing a wearable smartphone in the form of a glove, we can push the boundaries of technological innovations and move to a new era of wearable telecommunications. A fully wearable world is our view for the future.
First as a startup to actually produce a wearable smartphone in the form of a glove.
As people who engage in sports, especially running, we faced a major problem while exercising: the difficulty to use and carry our smartphones. Smartwatches and fitness trackers did not work efficiently for us as these devices must be paired with an existing smartphone and while operating them multiple safety or efficiency issues can arise.
Furthermore, there is no feasible way to initiate a call or send a text message, take videos or photos or even be able to use popular applications on a smartphone or smartwatch display to their current state during our training.
And thats how Glovdi was born, coming from the need to use a part of our body in its fullest usable capacity to increase the quality of our training and make it more fascinating. A wearable smartphone in the form of a glove can do so much more than just a regular one by using the user’s own hand, and transform it to an ultimate device, making use of gestures and haptic feedback as input. As our hands become the ultimate training device, we can utilize real time data for analytics and improve and compare our performance daily.
