Not content to merely bring you the latest news, Medgadget may at times venture into the land of preventive medicine and even occasionally suggest new ways to use old tools to prevent medical maladies. In this spirit, and in light of the recent firestorm (no pun intended) over the dangerous Xbox cords, we have searched high and low to bring you the latest in videogame safety equipment. Of their appropriately named X2, The Glove Corporation says:
Through the use of a brushed pigskin palm and an elkskin back we have developed a glove unmatched in durability and dexterity. The brushed pigskin palm provides superior wear and protection. The Elkskin back allows for the same dexterity and flexibility as found in our “Fire Fighter”, the largest selling fire glove in America. This high-quality glove maintains a four-ply Kevlar wristlet wing thumb and seamless index finger for even greater comfort and fit.
We only worry that videogamers may find them less than ideal in actual game play.
