First off... I come in peace. Second, I got the moderators permission to post this survey to their site, so please be kind/respectful... It's sad to say that I've already been viciously attacked on another "snow sports" forum, so this intro was necessary. I hope you all are a bit more friendly...
I'm a graduate student at Texas Christian University. As part of a class project, my team and I are performing market research for a local start-up company with a new product in the field of wearable technology. The technology is gloves that enable the wearer to control music, phone calls, and/or a GoPro camera using Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity embedded in the gloves. One of the target markets is snow sports, and the founder is an avid skier. We are interested in using this forum post to get respondents to a survey (administered through Qualtrics.com) that will gauge interest in such a technology.
Please note that, other than this class project, my team and I have no direct affiliation with the company that produces these gloves.
All personal information collected during the survey will be kept anonymous, and any personal information will remain strictly confidential. The survey is completely voluntary, and you'll be free to exit at any time. If there are any questions that you feel uncomfortable answering, you'll be able to skip those questions and move on.

I'm not trying to be a nuisance or advertise. If you don't feel like responding to the survey because it's not worth your time, I fully understand and appreciate that. I'm doing this for academic purposes, and I didn't know of any other means to reach a broad audience of snow sport enthusiasts.
If anyone DOES want information on the maker of the gloves, PM me, and I'd be happy to give that information out privately. Otherwise, I want to avoid the appearance that I'm advertising on their behalf. Thanks!
P.S. - I originally posted this in the Ski Gabber section of the forum. My apologies for double posting, but I thought it would be better in the Gear Talk section. The link has been fixed too.
