Bluetooth supported glove phone is the latest in wearable technology

Bluetooth supported glove phone is the latest in wearable technology
On the waves of a new movement into wearable technology, a new niche that includes Google Glass and smartwatches, comes a new product out of Britain. Designer Sean Miles of Designworks was given the job of creating something new out of recycled handsets. And what he came up with brings a new meaning to the saying "Talk to the hand".

Miles has come up with a Bluetooth connected glove that allows you to listen through the thumb and talk through the pinkie. This was not about making a marketable product, but was rather a challenge which Miles seems to have easily passed. "The glove is a very good carrier for this kind of technology," he says.

Now this definitely looks embarrassing in public places and also gives wrong signals with those actions ;-)

Is it water, dust and shockproof? That is the main point.

I think Bluetooth headset is still better. You don't have to use your hand to answer the call. Its the same like talking with your phone holding in your hand. Bluetooth was actually built for calling with "hands-free" but this is more like a downgrade.

I don't even wear gloves in the winter. I can't imagine wearing gloves in the summer just to use this device. I'll stick to my phone.

I thought ThinkGeek had something like this for $60, and they have conductive or whatever it is called so you can still use your touch screen phone.
