‘Talk to the hand’ no longer a figure of speech

Bluetooth Gloves

Not only are these gloves comfy and warm (and totally touch-screen friendly), but they will wirelessly synch with your smartphone, turning your hand into a phone… that’s right.

Just pull them on, press the “answer” button and make the classic “phone hand” shape. Now you’re talking.

Utilising an integrated microphone and speaker in the tips of the thumb and little finger, and a control pad on the top, you can communicate without taking your phone out of your pocket.

It’s not quite hands-free, but it still makes answering the phone supremely simple, plus you get to look like you’re having an imaginary conversation.

Features:

  • Bluetooth compatible
  • 95% polyacrylonitrile, 3% cotton, 2% polyester
  • USB charged
  • Operating range of 12 metres
  • Can be dry-cleaned

You can purchase it for $81 from Firebox.
