If you are a glover active in the online community, chances are you’ve heard of or are a member of the infamous Glover’s Lounge. Glover’s Lounge is the biggest gloving based Facebook group with over twenty thousand members. It’s a staggering number, but a recurring trend we see is that a handful of glovers dominate the group with their posts. This got me to thinking: how do we encourage beginners to join the conversation without feeling intimidated by the space?

I wanted to make a post addressing some of the things you’ve been seeing over the last few months about our products. I’d like to personally apologize for anyone who has had a bad experience with any of our lights. Last year we hit some serious snags in production and I want to show you guys everything we’re doing to make our lights more awesome than ever.
Before I get into it, a few things you should know.
I started this company in 2010 because at that time, companies had bad customer service and were known to ship out low quality lights, and I knew I could do better. So nobody has been pained more than me these last few months seeing all the posts about our top end products not living up to our quality standards. My goal from the very beginning has been to provide top quality light show products to serious, passionate glovers, and that value has carried us to where we are today.
The power of the lights we play with can produce a much more permanent image when captured in photos with slow shutter camera lenses. These pictures are a testament to the artist’s control over his lights and spacial awareness.
We took some of the trail art shots that spoke to us and posted them below. Brace yourself for some wild “paintings” if you will. Flow comes in all shapes and sizes. Check it out.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… The eLite Element V2 made contact with the human race.
What’s up guys! [LOL] [UV] Flow here, to talk about the newest chip from EmazingLights, the eLite Element V2. The V2 is a revamp on the Element light, the first glove light from Emazing with motion control technology that reacts dynamically to your movement.
What’s up, guys? This is Alpha Jack, I handle product marketing over at Emazing.
I’ve got to be honest, here. When Brian showed me the first prototype of the eCharge early in the year, I wasn’t sold. My glover brain immediately raised red flags when I saw this wired up contraption thingy for my hand.
But after putting it on and trading shows with the dudes in the office, I realized that despite my hesitations, this thing actually had a ton of potential. And now that it’s out, fully tested and developed, I know it does.
… we asked ourselves this fine morning, gently stroking Teddy’s beard in unison.
Well, we ran an analysis to see exactly where this year’s IGC competitors were coming from, and the results were pretty inspiring. Check out this dope map!
In collaboration with Electric Family, EmazingLights brings you the limited edition Glove 4 Glove bracelet. With 100% of profits from the bracelets going to Glove 4 Glove, we are able to expand our program and donate more gloves than ever before.
Gloving is a form of therapy for people of all walks of life. Before launching Glove 4 Glove, we did not know that gloving had health properties that are beneficial to the mind and body. Since then, a wide range of stories have changed the way we look at gloving.
When it comes to festivals I’m a total camping fiend. Hotels are for the weak! But I had never camped at a rave, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect at Nocturnal Wonderland. Luckily, being with the Facemelt Crew, it was pretty much impossible to have a bad time.
Count this as a win for the good guys:
Renowned Norcal venue Ruby Skye recently lifted its ban on gloving.
And because they did so without a public announcement, I, [Ambience] Euphoric, was the only glover in the club. This is how my night went down.
Even though all competitor spots are filled, spectator tickets are on sale right here, right now for only $10.
Why come to IGC if I can’t compete?
Firstly, that’s silly. Just because tickets are sold out doesn’t mean you can’t compete. You just need to get on our waiting list and show up early on the day of the event. To get on the list, you must purchase a spectator ticket first. So there you go!
Secondly, even if you can’t compete, this IGC is literally going to be ridiculous. We’re bringing back all of your favorite events and workshops from last year and stewing up some crazy new stuff, too.
