Maine Coast Now has an article about local space entrepreneur Peter Homer, the Astronaut Glove Challenge, and his new space company:
Mr. Homer’s gloves will be used for integrated suit testing and evaluation, and feature a patent-pending joint design that makes the fingers more flexible under pressure, increasing dexterity while reducing hand fatigue. The gloves are manufactured using a new process that eliminates time consuming adjustments to adapt the fit to the wearer's hands, producing a ready-to-wear garment that literally "fits like a glove."
Flagsuit is currently implementing a preliminary production capability with support from the Maine Technology Institute.
The commercial space suit gloves delivered last month are direct descendents of the design that won the 2007 NASA Challenge.
