Co-operation Request
Full Description:
(Specification of co-operation request / offer)
A German SME has invented a patented operating element for new technical equipment (e.g. GPS, Vario, Smartphone I-Phone, I-Pad, mobile phones). The technology is integrated in a fingerling which can be put on every kind of glove and still allows exact operation of both touch screens and small mobile buttons. The fingerling can be used everywhere where hands need to be protected from cold, heat or any other negative influence and technical and electronic equipment must be operated.The company is looking for a partner interested in distributing the fingerling and they are also interested in licensing agreements for the patented operating element.
