London, January 22: A graduate student from Loughborough University in Britain has launched innovative running gloves with built–in climate control. His patented invention is a unique mesh that ebles instant temperature regulation and moisture wicking. The gloves called FLUX are also touch–screen compatible and pack down as small as a tangerine, weighing less than six grams each, the university said in a statement. A sports technologist and keen runner, Ross Weir experimented with several glove prototypes, including electrically heated gloves, before establishing his simple yet innovative solution. The insulation and exposure of the hand can be easily controlled by placing an air permeable mesh on the palm and opening and closing the fist. (IANS)
