Boulder, Colo. (Sept. 23, 2011) -- Agloves® was one of six companies to receive the “IFA Usability Park 2011 Audience Award,” a coveted consumer-voted prize that lauds the most user-friendly product design at the world’s largest consumer electronics show, held at the beginning of September.
“We are honored to receive this acclaimed title,” said Jennifer Spencer, Agloves president, “Especially being among the throes of innovation giants such as Dyson and Nintendo. We hope our user-friendly design helps anyone with cold fingers this winter.”
IFA attendees were encouraged to stop at Usability Park to “intensively inspect” every product on display through hands on demonstration stations and vote for their personal favorites.
“The Usability Park presents products in a fashion that allows touching and trying out, and invites the audience to form their own opinion on good design,” said Cornelia Horsch, director of IDZ. “My compliments do not only go out to the winners…but also to the IFA audience, and the intensity with which the visitors have dealt with the examples of good and user-friendly design.”
The other companies/products to receive the award include:
Dyson AirMultiplier Turmentilator AMo2 | Dyson GmbH; Dyson Digital Slim DC35 Multi Floor | Dyson GmbH; Elgato EyeTV mobile | Elgato Systems GmbH; Mophie Juice Pack Plus | Mophie Inc; and Nintendo DS3 | Nintendo of Europe GmbH.
Agloves are winter gloves that work on touchscreens, and were the only clothing apparel in the Park. Agloves solve the problem that normal gloves don’t work on touchscreens. Their user-friendly design, which utilizes the conductive properties of silver, allows people to keep warm fingers during winter and use smartphones.
“The elegance of Agloves solution is a simple, everyday glove with tech-savvy functionality,” says Jennifer Spencer, president of Agloves.
Last month Agloves also won the IQ award, a Boulder County Business Report sponsored dedication to companies the exceptional product innovation and success.
