Torch White LED Light Glove

The new conceptual torch light designed by Slovenian designer Tilen Sepic, is something that has been picked straight out of the sci-fi movies. The whole idea of the concept as per the designer is to produce a working light without the hassle of shadows being reflected in the object. The device is supposed to be worn like a glove around the wrist and the light is emitted through the white LED which is a part of the device. The device also includes a battery pack with the light being transferred through the attached optical fibers to a specified location. Just point at the location and you will see light!

  1. Didn't Mechanix gloves already do this? I seem to remember they used to make gloves with led lights in them for working where you couldn't fit a larger light. Not as sci-fi, bot it's been done.

  2. wow, this could be really useful, in tight spaces

    or reading in a plane, where the overhead lights are never quite right. plus w/o the bulk and one more thing to carry or leave behind. for extended time have backpack/solar recharging, flat, not too much weight added, so how long will we have to wait?

  3. Well, until this comes out.. there’s an awesome version that has 3 LED’s in each finger for sale at http://www.litebrightraves.com It’s not so much a work glove.. but it’s bright as heck. It’s more of a party or rave item.. but my mom uses them to garden at night.. she’s kinda strange though.

  4. I'm from the future shopping for a retro-party I'm attending. What year will this Light Glove be manufactured, 2012, 2013? I dont want to have to visit every year to find it. Thanks!

  5. This is a cool looking design, but I don't think it would be very practical in most situations. There's no easy way to, say, set the light up somewhere so you can do something with both hands, nor could you hand it to someone else, and a form fitting glove like that can't possibly be one-size-fits-all. Plus, LEDs are efficient but they still produce heat, as do most battery packs, so that would cause discomfort over time and possibly make the glove disgusting with sweat. As others have pointed out too, the controls would need to be accessible by the hand that is doing the glowing, but that's just a matter of remapping the controls.

    A regular flashlight with an LED bulb is still a better design than this, neat though the idea is.

  6. maybe they can use rubber since they are insulators…. rubber can be stretch so i guess it can fit all sizes of hands regardless how small or big it is…… Thin rubbers are more comfortable then the big ones i guess but prespiration can still be a problem though… xD
