Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of copending application U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 60/995,299 filed on Sep. 26, 2007, the disclosure of which is expressly incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The subject invention is related to an illuminated glove device. More particularly, the subject invention is related to an illuminated glove device for use in traffic control, military, roadside assistance, emergency personnel, recreational, and other illumination purposes for low-light, night vision, signaling and/or safety applications. The illumination device preferably includes a contact switch capable of controlling operation of the device in various modes, where the contact switch can be activated by pressing the switch at the base of the glove.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • It has long been known that individuals participating in recreational outdoor activities, traffic control, military, roadside assistance, emergency assistance, and other activities particularly in low light or dark conditions may require the assistance of illumination. In addition, construction, road crews, police officers, firefighters, emergency personnel, first responders, joggers, or even pedestrians can be exposed to injury when not seen. This, of course, is particularly true in low light conditions or at night, but can be true even in inclement weather conditions, such as snow storms and the like. Further, individuals participating in recreational activities and sports, such as biking, skiing, snowboarding, sledding or the like may also be exposed to injury in inclement weather when vision is impaired.
  • While attempts have been made to provide means for making an individual more visible in such low light or dark conditions, they are less than satisfactory. For example, individuals participating in outdoor activities have placed reflective tapes on their clothing, worn bright-colored clothing, utilized reflective holograms, surface-mounted beams of light and/or reflective or transmitting devices but, as will be appreciated, unless a motorist's lights strike the reflective material precisely or the motorist can recognize or see a beam of light, the individuals remain at risk. Warning materials have even been incorporated into articles of clothing, such as reflective tape on gloves, vests, shoes etc. Gloves have also been provided with illuminating substances having phosphorescent or florescent properties.
  • The subject invention provides a device for optimally illuminating the hand of an individual participating in various activities under low light, no light or inclement weather conditions and overcomes the shortcomings in prior art systems.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The subject invention is directed to an illuminated glove device for use in recreational and safety applications. The illuminated glove device preferably includes at least a first layer in contact with a user's hand, a second layer made of a laminate material on which a circuit is provided, and a third layer operably connected to the second layer for providing a protective coating of the circuit contained in the second layer. The circuit preferably includes one or more light sources, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) for illuminating the hand of a user while in use. The first layer is typically a fleece material, but can also be leather, rubber, polyvinyl, microfiber, knit, polyester, nylon, spandex, or any other natural or synthetic material or composite material suitable for a given application. The second and third layers can be laminate textiles, and are preferably flexible thermoplastic or thermo-fusible materials including but not limited to: ethylene vinyl acetate, polyethylene, polyester and polyamide.
  • The circuit can be adapted and configured to include a number of different colored light emitting sources such as red, green and amber. In addition, the circuit can be configured to enable selective and alternate illumination of these light sources so that light sources of a single color or a combination of colors can be illuminated if desired.
  • The illuminated glove device of the subject invention can also be adapted and configured to operate in a plurality of modes such as all on, all off, strobe, and blinking. These modes are accessed by a user by engaging a switch positioned on the illuminated glove which serves to control which mode of operation the illuminated glove device is maintained. The circuitry also includes a replaceable battery for powering the circuit. Because the battery is replaceable, this allows for lower manufacturing costs.
  • The subject invention can be used in a variety of applications such as recreational activities, traffic control, military, roadside assistance, and by persons such as emergency construction road crews, police officers, firefighters, emergency personnel, first responders, joggers, bikers or even pedestrians.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The subject invention relates to an illuminated glove device for safety and recreational use. The illuminated glove device (also referred to herein as “glove”) may be fabricated from a full length glove covering each of the fingers, or a partial glove, where a portion of one or more of the fingers is exposed. The illuminated glove device includes an electrical circuit in which one or more light emitting components, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs), are connected by a wire in a closed circuit. The circuit may be present on one or both sides of the glove; in other words, only a single circuit may be used to illuminate light emitting components on one or both sides of the glove, or alternatively, multiple circuits may be used to illuminate one or both sides of the glove. A tactile switching mechanism preferably is provided on the glove which allows a user to turn the glove on and off or switch colors, for example, between amber, red, and green. The circuit and switch may also be adapted to allow the glove to alternate between a variety of modes. These modes include on, off, blinking and strobe, and encompass the ability to selectively and alternately illuminate different colors or groups of light sources. The circuitry is preferably battery powered, with a battery housed within a battery pack positioned on the glove, typically on the back portion of the glove. This device is suitable for various applications including use in traffic control, military, roadside assistance, emergency, recreational, warning, night vision, signaling and safety illumination applications.
  • FIG. 1 is a three-dimensional perspective view of an illuminated glove device 10 according to the subject invention. A plurality of light sources such as LEDs 20 are connected in series by a wire 30, such as a Kevlar® wire. However, the LEDs 20 in the circuitry may be substituted with any suitable optical illuminator such as fluorescent bulbs, incandescent bulbs, liquid crystal display (LCD) devices, etc. FIG. 1 also depicts the orientation of the terms used to describe the illuminated glove device 10 throughout this application. The proximal direction P is toward a wrist or opening of the glove, the distal direction D is toward the tips of the fingers, the front side F of the glove referring to a palm side of the glove and the back side B of the glove referring to the side opposite the palm.
  • FIG. 2 is an enlarged, isolated perspective view of a portion of a circuit 40 showing a plurality of LEDs 20 according to the subject invention. For example, as shown in FIG. 2, the LEDs 20 are spaced along a perimeter of each finger and continue lengthwise down the illuminated glove device 10, thus forming the shape of a human hand. This particular configuration of LEDs 20 enables a person viewing the illuminated glove device 10 at a distance to recognize a user's hand form. In other words, the arrangement of LEDs 20 that approximate the outline of the user's hand can enhance visibility of the glove, and thus alert viewers to the presence of the user and distinguish the user from other potential sources of illumination in the vicinity of the user. However, the LEDs or other light sources may be arranged in any particular manner suitable for a given application.
  • Because the illuminated glove device 10 is configured to be used in wet conditions or may otherwise come into contact with moisture, oil or dirt from the hand of the user, the subject invention provides for waterproof protection of the circuit 40. FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view of the illuminated glove device 10 showing various layers of circuitry protection for the circuit 40 that are arranged in conjunction with the glove material. These layers include at least a first layer of glove material 50, a flexible layer 60 that is preferably operably connected to the circuit 40, and an outer or surface layer 70. The glove material 50 preferably is made of a fiber material such as fleece, leather, rubber, polyvinyl, microfiber, knit, polyester, nylon, spandex, or any other natural or synthetic material or composite material suitable for a given application. In one embodiment, the glove material 50 is a micro-fleece material. The glove material 50 is configured to come into contact with the skin and helps shield and protect the skin of the user's hand.
  • The flexible layer 60 is typically a laminated textile material that is configured to be connected to the glove material 50. For example, the laminated textile material can be a thermoplastic or thermo-fusible material such as ethylene vinyl acetate, polyethylene, polyester, or polyamide. The flexible layer 60 must be suitably elastic to allow the user to perform hand signals, gripping or other manual functions while the illuminated glove device 10 is in use. As shown, the circuit 40 is adhered to the flexible layer 60 using thermofusion, epoxy, glue, or another adhesive or connecting element for securing the circuit 40 to the flexible layer 60.
  • A surface layer 70 preferably is connected to the flexible layer 60 to shield the circuit 40 from the atmosphere, thereby providing a partial or complete seal against moisture. The surface layer 70 can be a clear laminate and may be the same material as the flexible layer 60, namely thermoplastic or thermo-fusible materials such as ethylene vinyl acetate, polyethylene, polyester, and polyamide, or optionally may be a different material. The connection between the flexible layer 60 and the surface layer 70 is preferably achieved by using a lamination process. During the process, an adhesive such as a reactive laminate powder can be used to bond the surface layer 70 to the flexible layer 60. The powder or other adhesive, for example, can be activated by heat in a heated press which bonds the layers 60, 70 together. The lamination process is used to seal the circuit 40, providing waterproof protection from outside moisture and contamination.
  • A front portion of the glove material 50 preferably is connected to a back portion of the glove material 50 by a woven or stitched flexible cord 80. A cross-sectional view of the flexible cord 80 connecting the front and back portions of the glove material 50 is shown in FIG. 4. The flexible cord 80 can be woven with a cross stitch or web pattern, for example, and connects the two halves of the glove material to each other in order to form the shape of the illuminated glove device 10. By using the flexible cord 80, the illuminated glove device 10 is adjustable in size, and thus can expand so as to be suitable for various glove sizes. The use of cross-stitched or woven flexible cord 80 also increases the durability of the illuminated glove device 10. The flexible cord 80 can be made of elastic or any other suitable stretch material.
  • FIG. 5 is an exemplary diagram of a circuit 150 for one side of the illuminated glove device 10 of the subject invention. The circuit has a plurality of LEDs 20, operational amplifiers 160, additional voltage regulating circuitry 180 and a switch 120 for activating the circuit 150. FIG. 6 shows an exemplary circuit diagram of an electrical circuit 170 for both the front F and the back B sides of the illuminated glove device 10 of the subject invention, having a plurality of LEDs 20, operational amplifiers 160, additional voltage regulating circuit 180 and a switch 120 for activating the circuit 170. Circuits 150, 170 may also be adapted to allow the illuminated glove device 10 to alternate between a variety of modes. These modes include, on, off, blinking or strobe, as well as the ability to alternate the color of LEDs 20 illuminated. LEDs 20 may be placed in an alternating pattern of any one of red, green or amber, etc. depending on a desired application.
  • FIG. 7 shows a battery pack 100 that preferably includes a battery 90, battery casing 110, and battery cover 130. When the battery cover 130 is returned to a closed position, in the direction of the arrow as shown, a closed circuit is formed connecting the battery 90, or power source, to the circuit 40. The battery 90 may also be replaceable in order to reduce costs. The battery pack 100 may be held in place by the wristband 140 of the illuminated glove device 10. The wristband 140 may also incorporate a strap with a hook and loop mechanism such as a Velcro® latch or other clasping mechanism to secure the battery pack 100.
  • FIGS. 8 and 9 are two-dimensional perspective views of the front and back of the illuminated glove device 10, respectively. A placement of the switch 120 and battery pack 100 are also shown. With regard to the switch 120, in this embodiment, a user, with the same hand, is capable of controlling an operation of the illuminated glove device 10 by pressing the switch 120 and also alternating between a variety of illumination modes. In one embodiment, the switch 120 is a rocker on/off switch. In another embodiment, the switch 120 is a momentary switch so that one needs to hold it down for a predetermined time before it is operative, thus preventing the illuminated glove device 10 from being inadvertently turned on or off by accidentally touching the switch 120. The illuminated glove device 10 may also be adapted with a hook or loop mechanism (not shown), such as a band of material or strap to hold an additional mini flashlight, alternative illumination device or other accessory on the lateral portion of the hand.
  • The present invention has been described in detail, including preferred embodiments. However, it should be recognized that those skilled in the art, upon considering this disclosure, may make modifications and improvements within the spirit and scope of this invention.
