All major companies are exploring the possibilities and experimenting with wearable devices. The latest concept in that direction to hit the market is the Hi-Call Glove. It is a glove with a Bluetooth enabled device that lets you talk on your phone without taking the gloves off. When you are talking through this glove it appears that you are making the universal sign for ‘call me’. The Hi-Call glove has a microphone in the pinkie and a speaker in the thumb. When you want to talk on the phone you simply have to raise your hand to your head, put your thumb in your ear and your pinkie next to your mouth.
The Hi-Call Gloves Designed by Alain Morelli
There is no high technology involved but the simple everyday technology has been used innovatively. It is part of the growing trend of integrating technology into our clothing. The innovative product has been developed by Alain Morelli but it is not clear as to how successful the concept will be. First of all it is a seasonal product and you don’t wear the gloves all the time. But it definitely has a curiosity value and it will attract attention when your glove starts ringing. Since it connects
with the mobile phone through Bluetooth technology it works with any Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The left glove has the microphone and the speaker as you may be holding your phone in your right hand.
