Park Bomin, Jung Sumi and Chu Yeunho won a Red Dot Design Award for what they believe to be a big improvement to the surgical gloves used in hospitals. The trio’s Safe Cut Surgical Gloves feature a pull tab that not only makes the gloves easier to remove, but also prevents them from ever being reused — intentionally or not — which helps prevent the spread of disease.
Some would argue that professional baseball of past eras was a simpler and purer version of the game, free from controversies like player strikes or steroid use. And this line of Shoeless Joe throwback gloves, that recreate designs from as far back as 1910, could help you relive those times — even if they’re named after a player who was banned from the game after the 1919 Chicago White Sox scandal.

It might look like a badass start to your own Iron Man suit, but on closer inspection, this $US3300 CO2-powered Exo-Gauntlet on Etsy won’t quite give you Tony Stark-like superpowers.
