We are proud to announce that we have partnered up with a wonderful organization this Holiday Season. SkiDUCK is a volunteer based non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of disadvantaged and financially underprivileged youth by teaching and sharing the joys of skiing and snowboarding. Each season SkiDUCK provides over 1,000 youth with nearly 2,000 FREE days of skiing and snowboarding; including free lift tickets, rentals and lessons! SkiDUCK needs funding to keep sending kids to the mountain.
While GoGlove has donated to SkiDUCK in the past, we are announcing a huge plan to get as many kids on the mountain as possible this season. From 12/1 to 12/25, EVERY SINGLE GOGLOVE SOLD GETS A CHILD ON THE SLOPES! Thats right, when you buy GoGlove, a child will get to experience a day on the mountain. Give the gift of experiencing skiing to someone else when you buy GoGlove.
Imagine the special trip for a child to ride a chairlift for the first time, to experience the freedom on the slopes, and to head to the lodge for a hot coco break. You know what that is like... Help someone else live that moment.
Help us spread the word about this promotion and the organization. You can find more details about SkiDUCK here.

It has been a while since our last update, but boy have we come a long way! Just as a quick recap, we went through an accelerator program, fully redesigned the GoGlove remote, setup manufacturing, made our first round of product, and are now delivering it all to you. Whew, it has been a crazy year.
GoGlove is now being shipped to all Kickstarter backers and anyone who pre-ordered through our store. Shipments are going out and we expect to fulfill all orders within the next week. We also have some exciting new updates to share as we move forward. First, we have launched an affiliate program, so you can actually get paid to help us sell GoGlove! Just follow the link at the top of this page for "Become an Affiliate" and you will get a personalized link that you can share with people you know. For everyone that buys a glove through your link, you get paid!
Second, we have a Getting Started Guide now on our website. If you have purchased GoGlove and are looking to get it all setup, this is the place to start. We will be updating and refining this as we move forward and gather feedback, so please, share your thoughts if you think we can improve it.
Finally, we will be releasing our apps into the app store for GoGlove very soon that will extend the functionality of your GoGlove. In the meantime, we are looking for people to help out with final testing or who just want to get their hands on the app first. If you would like to sign up, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get you all set up
As winter approaches, we are so excited to get GoGlove out onto peoples hands. We know you will love the product we have created and we hope you can help us spread the word. Shout about us on Twitter and Facebook, talk to your local ski shop and ask them to stock it, or join our affiliate program and get paid to sell. There are many great ways to help, but perhaps the best is to simply enjoy the product and wear it as much as you can.
Here's to a great ski season!

We found out this week that GoGlove has been accepted to Accelerate NH, a startup accelerator. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to grow our business by getting mentorship and resources we wouldn't otherwise have access to. We will be involved in their 3 month program starting in February, culminating in Demo Day at the end of May.
What does this mean for Kickstarter backers and their rewards? Not much, really. We will still be manufacturing and building the product on the same schedule, the accelerator will really help us refine our business plan and help us reach a wider market.
The program starts February 23rd, and we can't wait to start getting involved and start building our brand!

We have been so super busy since we launched on Kickstarter, we can't believe it has only been 2 weeks so far! At this point, we are at 67% of our goal and have flown past our previous campaign total. We still have lots of ground to cover, but things started out so well!
This past week-end we were at the Boston Ski and Snowboard Expo. It was great to get out and meet so many great people and companies!
Snow has been falling here in New England and it seems every day a new resort is opening. We are planning to get out and hit the slopes this week-end. We will be giving away stickers and t-shirts to anyone who can find us on the mountains, so follow us on Twitter to try and catch up with us!
Nov. 9, 2014, 9:33 a.m.
Since we launched this past Tuesday, the team has been super busy trying to get the word out. We had a great event in Boston on Thursday night, then headed to New York City for Engadget Expand, a two day tech conference on Friday and Saturday. We had an amazing time, met some awesome people, and gave away free stuff.
Here are a few pictures from the event. As you can see, Ben just loves himself in front of the camera, he kept running to every possible interview he could find! You can see our booth too, we had a ton of traffic and had a great time showing off GoGlove to all the attendees.
Nov. 4, 2014, 10:27 a.m.

We told you we had some good announcements coming! That's right GoGlove fans, you can now fully control your GoPro from GoGlove (fitting, right?). No second module necessary, you just hook your phone to the GoPro's Wifi network, as you would when you want to use the GoPro app, and you're all set. You can now capture video, snap pictures, change mode, and even turn the camera on/off to save battery, all in the magical GoGlove way. And to make things even easier, we will use text-to-speech to tell you what you have done, so no more guessing if your GoPro is taking video or if you really did snap that picture. It's the intuitive GoPro remote.
The best part, you can do it at the same time you are controlling your music or any other GoGlove feature. So no need to change anything if you want to snap a picture and crank your tunes, they are both just a click away. As far as we can tell, this is the first remote control for both your music and GoPro at the same time!
To spoil you even more, here is a small clip from our upcoming video to show off the feature using the stanalone remote. We can't wait to show you what else we have up our sleeves!
Oct. 27, 2014, 12:11 p.m.
That's right, we have officially started the countdown to our Kickstarter Launch! We should hit that large 'Go' button on November 5th at 12pm and bring GoGlove back to the public.
Check back frequently for many exciting announcements, as well as new product photos and videos, as we gear up for our launch!
Oct. 22, 2014, 2:27 p.m.
We have spent a lot of time showing the new gloves, so we wanted to give you a preview of the new case design. We wanted to produce a case that allowed you to extend all the great GoGlove functionality into every season, not just winter. So we came up with a sleek new design that allows you to simply unplug the module from GoGlove and clip it to a wristband, watch, shirt, keychain, or just about anything and carry your remote wherever you go. Now you can control your phone in every situation.
We have already prototyped and built several of these cases and will show you some updated images and videos shortly. In the meantime, we wanted to give you a glimpse of how the case will look and what goes inside. Stay tuned as we will be divulging more images and a few new secret features in the coming weeks.
Oct. 17, 2014, 3:24 p.m.
Mike has come on board to help finalize the mechanical aspects of GoGlove and get us ready for manufacturing and production. He brings over 10 years experience as a mechanical and systems engineer in the aerospace industry working on commercial and NASA spacecraft. Building the rest of GoGlove should be easy for him since, hey, it’s not rocket science.
Mike is an avid runner and is training up for his first marathon this fall. Here he is at a recent 10 miler rocking our colors and getting the name out!
Oct. 11, 2014, 1:21 p.m.
We just got our new batch of test gloves from the manufacturer, and they look great! The design and feel are very close to the final product, and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. We can't wait to get these gloves back onto Kickstarter and onto your hands!
Sept. 11, 2014, 9:52 a.m.

Engadget Live was held in Boston this past Friday, and the team is still getting their voices back after talking for many hours straight! We had an absolutely fantastic time showing GoGlove and getting all your amazing feedback.
If you missed us this time, stay tuned as we are lining up shows in other cities over the next few months!
Aug. 20, 2014, 1:15 p.m.
We will be demo'ing GoGlove at Engadget Live in Boston this Friday, August 22. If you are in the area, please come by and check us out, tickets are free and you can sign up here.

We wanted to thank everyone for your amazing support and positive comments. Many of you have given us great feedback and truly helped us make GoGlove a great product. But we still have some work to do to get it on your hands! We will continue development of GoGlove and will come back to Kickstarter stronger than ever!
With the deadline behind us, we wanted to give you an update with our next steps. We had a great campaign and learned a lot. This was not a failure and actually a great step in our development process. Now we are so much better prepared to run a great campaign. The only difference is that we have to pull our bootstraps a little tighter and fund the development from our own pockets. We are going to push to keep our timelines and deliver this winter. Most likely, we will be back on Kickstarter in the late fall. Please back us again!
Our goal is to improve the look of the module design and we will have several samples. The next Kickstarter will show GoGlove with a much improved and finalized look.
Please sign up at the bottom of the page to get information as we progress, or follow our updates here.
Thanks again for all your support! See you soon,
Ben, Eric, and the GoGlove Team

By now, you have seen many ways that GoGlove can control more than just music. Today, we wanted to show how far we plan to take that in the future by moving beyond even smartphones. The picture below is taken by GoGlove from a GoPro, wirelessly. That's right, GoGlove is controlling GoPro and telling it when to take a picture. Imagine using this on the slopes or trails!
Making GoGlove work with GoPro requires some new hardware as the camera does not support Bluetooth. Instead, it uses Wifi for control. This requires a whole new board, here we are making it work with a Spark Core, which is a great Arduino clone with Wifi built in. Clearly this would not be the final design, there would be more work to convert this into our own board, pair it with a battery, and fit it into our case design.
This is all proof of concept at this point, we will not have GoPro support in the first iteration of GoGlove, but wanted to show you the possibilities. The Glove, however, will require no changes whatsoever, only the module will have to change. This means you can keep your glove and buy the Wifi remote from us down the line and use it to control your music, and your GoPro.
July 27, 2014, 8:14 a.m.
That's right, we have redesigned the case of GoGlove to be a standalone remote. It was quite obvious and simple when we stepped back and looked at it, just add more buttons to the top and it can have the same functionality as the glove.
We did this because we heard feedback from our backers that, while they love the glove, they also want something for warmer weather. While the GoBand would have worked as a wristband, it wasn't practical for other applications. So now, you can unplug the remote from your glove, and use it as a wristband, on your keychain, on a lanyard, or anywhere else. It makes GoGlove as flexible as possible.
We will be posting more details on the design in the coming days, stay tuned!
July 25, 2014, 11:36 a.m.
We have a big announcement coming this week-end. Sign up now on Kickstarter to be the first to find out!
July 23, 2014, 3:14 p.m.
We have been hard at work finalizing GoGlove, but decided to take a few minutes and make something fun for the kids. Eric had a homemade toy robot lying about from a previous project, and we thought, "Hey, we should be able to control it from GoGlove!". Why? Well, why not!
So, we grabbed an RFDuino and replaced the arduino and used the GoGlove API to start controlling the robot, or should I say GoBot. The index finger made it go/stop, the middle finger made it turn right and the ring finger made it turn left. The kids had a great time playing with it, even if the glove was a little big for a 3 year old.
Here's a little demo video to show the robot working. Enjoy!
July 14, 2014, 3:12 p.m.
We've had a pretty exciting first week on Kickstarter. We managed to reach 20% of our goal in the first 24 hours! We also had some great articles written about us in Venture Beat and Gizmag. And we have gotten some very positive feedback from our 180 backers and counting.
Despite all the work we are doing to get our Kickstarter campaign over 100%, we are still hard at work on GoGlove. Last week, Eric wrote a sample app to show how our API can be used to integrate with other apps. He showcases how GoGlove can be used to poll your phone for your speed/distance when out on the trails, or even read you your text messages! You can view the video here
We will continue to post some new pictures and videos of the inner workings this week. Stay tuned!
July 3, 2014, 11:29 p.m.
The Kickstarter page is live and accepting pre-orders. Head on over and pick up your GoGloves at up to 40% off now!

The last few months have been pretty exciting as we have been finalizing the prototypes, working with manufacturers and designers, and getting the product ready. We have two exciting pieces of news to share.
First, we are setting our Kickstarter launch date as July 4th, Independence Day. We could make some cheap pun about how we will be liberating you from the shackles of your smartphone screen and giving you independence and freedom from the hassles of listening to terrible music while you ski. But that would just be too obvious.
Second, and perhaps more exciting, we are launching a complimentary product to GoGlove. The idea is simple, we developed GoGlove in the winter and love what it did for us when on the mountain. As summer finally came (we live in New England, so trust us, we waited a long time this year), we got ourselves outside and moving, but wanted the same ability to control our phone (without running down the street with one glove, MJ style).
So introducing, GoBand. You can use the same control module from your GoGlove and place it into the band. It has extra large buttons on top to trigger the same functionality as the GoGlove. This was key for us as we have seen products with tiny little buttons that are very hard to hit when running.
GoGlove will be a stretch goal in the Kickstarter campaign. If we hit the certain amount, everyone who buys GoGlove will also get GoBand free of charge.
May 1, 2014, 3:35 p.m.
Welcome to our website! This is our first step in the long road before we can put this glove on your hand. We know you are anxious, and so are we. Over the next few weeks, we plan to ramp up our email gathering and support generation which should culminate in us launching the Kickstarter campaign. The ultimate goal is to ship the final product before Christmas of 2014. Keep track of the status above as we progress.
