Planning to head to South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics? Luckily for Visa card members, they’ll have the chance to pick up a new pair of winter gloves equipped with tap-to-pay technology, as Seoul expects temperatures to reach 4.8 degrees celsius during the games!

These gloves allow customers to make payments by simply swiping their palm. Customers can choose a pair of prepaid gloves that range in price from 30,000KRW to 50,000KRW, which convert to USD $27 to $45. Visa also plans to sell four different commemorative Olympic pins and eight different stickers designed with the same tap-to-pay technology.

All three of the products went on sale at the Lotte Card customer center in South Korea and on their website on November 9.
