WHY HEATED GLOVES?

After suffering my own challenges during a 6 hour walking tour in Prague in -21 degrees of snow, my hands became numb and very painful from the cold. I had disposable hand warmers however, because I had my gloves on, I couldn’t feel the warmth from the hand warmers. So in sheer desperation, I put my hand warmers inside my glove and I felt immediate relief.

When I returned to the UK, I researched fashionable heated gloves for women. All I could find were big, black and bulky heated gloves for men who ride motorcycles or for skiers out in the snow.

AND THEN I QUIT MY JOB

It took me 3 years to resign from my secure job as an Australian solicitor to enter this new world of entrepreneurship. And I love it! I won a wearable technology hackathon and am developing my prototype now with my technical team.

I LOVE…

I love being creative, writing, meeting new people and seeing how innovative we can be with technology to improve and enhance our lives.

I am an advocate of supporting women in wearables, internet of things and augmented and virtual reality.  Since developing my prototype for my heated gloves, I have co-founded WoW UK, Women of Wearables with fellow woman in wearables, Marija Butkovic. Read about WoW here.
