Sometimes the simplest idea is the cleverest. If you’ve ever gestured talking on the phone with your hand (i.e. thumb held up to ear, pinky extended towards mouth, all other fingers tucked into palm), you’d know what we mean. Hi-Fun, a company from Europe, has now developed nifty bluetooth-enabled gloves that come with an inbuilt mic in the little finger and a speaker in the thumb, so that you, mysterious gloved one, may now make a call and talk to your hand – er, we mean, friend. This cute little invention is compatible with any Bluetooth phone and slated to greet the world in October 2012 next month. The financial setback? €49.99. Yep, the future is somewhat affordable.
