Our guest is coming out of the UK and is in the middle of a successful Kickstarter campaign for his innovation of the glove. What in the heck is there to innovate? A glove is just supposed to keep your hands warm, right? Well, what about keeping them cool as well? In any case, this sport technologist shares the process from the idea to market and it’s a pretty interesting ride. Whether you have an idea you want to bring to life or just love seeing how others do it, this is the Athlete On Fire for you![/bgsection]
