Bionic Dress/Driving Gloves

Bionic Gloves also incorporate the anatomy of the palm, fingers and thumb. These areas of the hand have bony prominences — high points of the bone next to the skin. The friction of a tool, baseball bat or golf club against the bony prominences cause blisters, calluses and hand fatigue. Bionic Gloves feature strategically placed pads to reduce the pressure and friction caused by gripping a tool or a golf club. Both comfort and grip strength are vastly improved.

The difference Bionic Glove technology makes is both impressive and practical. The exact anatomic location of the 3 layers of padding has been shown in independent studies to improve grip strength, torque strength and pinch strength.

The Bionic Glove is unlike any glove on the market because it incorporates the science of anatomy and ergonomics For example; the anatomy of your fingers is pre-rotated, meaning the pinky and forefinger rotates inward toward the center of your hand. Unlike conventional gloves, Bionic Gloves feature a pre-rotated design that follows the natural motion of your fingers. The result is a custom fit that maximizes comfort, dexterity and performance.

With multiple patented and patent-pending technologies, Bionic Gloves are forging new ground in glove design. These technologies incorporate innovative features that cannot be found on conventional gloves. The result is a customized fit with enhanced performance. Once you put them on, you will feel the impressive difference. So, if it doesn’t say Bionic, your hands will be missing out on technology like no other.

Most driving and dress gloves are made strictly for fashion or warmth. Not much else. The innovative science behind the Bionic Driving/Dress Glove offers much more than the typical glove — it combines fashionable appeal with comfortable function.

Most gloves are cut with straight fingers. Unfortunately, all fingers do not bend that way. The pinky and forefinger actually rotate inward. The Bionic Driving/Dress Glove uses a pre-rotated finger design, inspired by the hand’s anatomy, to promote natural closure.

Whether you’re gripping the wheel or carrying a shopping bag, the Bionic glove feels remarkably comfortable. And with extra padding where the hand needs it most, hand fatigue is virtually non-existent. Now, you can stay fashionable and warm — without sacrificing comfort and dexterity!

IMac G5

What if you could command an entire world of music, photos, movies and DVDs — all from your sofa? Now you can share the good life with friends and family on a 17- or 20-inch new iMac G5 featuring Front Row software and Apple Remote. Slimmer than ever, the gravity-defying enclosure also houses built-in iSight, SuperDrive, wireless and the easy-to-use software that brings it all together. Modern living starts at only $1299. (Mighty Mouse not sold separately.)

You’ve got the best seat in the house. The full-screen Front Row media experience — with its intuitive menus, large text and brilliant graphics — lets you browse the music, photos and videos on your iMac as easily as you browse music on your iPod. And the new Apple Remote lets you do your browsing from anywhere in the room. So gather your friends and dazzle them with a slideshow of your vacation pics, a home movie or a DVD. iMac G5 was born to entertain.

With iTunes, you’re never more than a click away from the world’s most popular source of music, audiobooks and podcasts. Now the digital revolution strikes again — you can also purchase your favorite music videos and selected TV shows. Download those episodes of Lost or Desperate Housewives that you missed. Or sync your videos with the new iPod and watch them anywhere.

There’s an iSight camera built into every new iMac, so you can start a video chat (or join one) at a moment’s notice. There’s nothing to buy, nothing to attach, no cords to fumble with, no software to install or configure. Simply start up iChat AV, click your buddy’s video icon and you’re ready to chat with sight and sound — with up to three friends at once. Proper attire suggested.

The new Photo Booth application (included) turns your iMac into a modern-day arcade photo booth (minus the coin slot). Just pick a special effect like sepia tint, x-ray, bulge or squeeze. And smile. Presto — instant high-quality photo. Once you have the perfect pic, take advantage of Photo Booth’s connections to share it via Mail, save it in iPhoto or use it as your Address Book or iChat buddy picture.

Behind its breathtaking 17- or 20-inch widescreen display, iMac G5 displays some monstrous power — with a 1.9GHz or 2.1GHz G5 processor, a sizzling new PCI-Express ATI Radeon X600 Pro or XT graphics processor with 128MB of dedicated video memory and a new high-bandwidth system architecture. These technologies, coupled with Mac OS X Tiger (the world’s most advanced operating system), simply make iMac G5 a joy to drive. Whether you’re exercising your creativity, surfing the web, playing compute-intensive games or just staying in touch with friends.

iMac G5 has the power — and the brains — to be the center of your digital universe. It comes with iLife ’05: a suite of easy-to-use applications that make the spectacular part of your everyday life. Enhance, organize and share your photos via iPhoto. Make an epic starring your kid in iMovie. Turn your photo and movie creations into professional DVDs with iDVD. Create original music in GarageBand, even if you can’t carry a tune.

Like any modern computer should, iMac G5 comes ready with software preinstalled to use your digital devices right away. Just plug them in. With a plentiful passel of ports — USB 2.0, FireWire 400, composite and S-video outputs, audio in and out — you can connect just about any device, from cameras and camcorders to hard drives, stereos and the Mighty Mouse included with every iMac G5. With the forward-thinking Scroll Wheel, you can move around your digital life with 360° of freedom. And with built-in Gigabit Ethernet, you’re all set for wired networking.

Better yet, eliminate the desktop clutter. iMac G5 comes with a pre-installed AirPort Extreme Card, so you can hop onto the Internet wirelessly up to 150 feet from an AirPort Extreme Base Station. Or you can add an AirPort Express with AirTunes to stream music to your stereo and send documents to your printer. iMac G5 also includes an internal Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) for the latest wireless devices, like the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. You can even sync your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone so your numbers are always up to date. Impress your friends, confound your enemies — wireless only looks like magic.
