Bluetooth surprises the public again with the development of an interestingly weird device known as the glove. That's right, Bluetooth integrated with a glove.
Winters mean snow, snowball fights, snowman or snow woman, snow angels, snow storms, and more snow. Winter can be a fun time, but it definitely is a pain having to take off your glove because they make your fingers pudgy and impossible to make or answer a call.
Luckily, the guys over at Hi-Fun introduced a wacky, but useful device that allows you to make calls in the middle of winter without getting frost bite. Hi-Call is the one of a kind glove integrated with Bluetooth to enable connectivity with your mobile phone.
Any phone would work as long it is equipped with Bluetooth, which is probably every single phone out on the market today. How does this work?
The process is actually pretty simple. The glove maintains a connection with your phone, which is in your pocket, via Bluetooth. One glove is equipped with a navigation panel at the wrist for hang up and call answer. The other phone has a tiny microphone sewn into the pinkie while the other end is equipped with a tiny speaker.
Yes, it does look pretty weird talking to your hand and it will definitely draw some awkward stares, but at least your hands will stay warm when you answer a phone in the winter time. Readers should be prepared and should not assume metal illness is on the rise during the winter months.
According to DVICE, Hi-Call is selling for around $65 per pair through Hi-Fun's website. At the moment, no stock until further notice.
