Geek Chic: Be Inspector Gadget with Bluetooth gloves

The universal sign for talking on the phone no longer needs to be a pantomime of the act of talking on the phone. Thanks to Italian firm Hi-Fun you can now use your gloves as a hands free set - well, they don't actually work that well hands free, but you know what we mean.

The hi-Call Bluetooth Talking Glove have the speaker built into the thumb and the mic in the little finger, perfect for the "call me" gesture.

It's easy to pair the gloves with your phone, as it's more or less the same as with any headset with built-in buttons to pair the device and end the call. The glove vibrates when there is an incoming call and feature a capacitive tip on the finger to allow you to use your smartphone without having to take off the gloves.

While not particularly cheap, retailing at about €49, they are certainly useful for the winter commute.

But, you're not going to buy these just to be practical, are you?
