Engadget has a great story today about a rather strange invention that had me thinking it might be a very early (or very late) April Foolís joke, but it does in fact seem to be genuine. What we have here is a product called the Hi-Call, which Engadget spotted at the IFA trade show, and which is basically a pair of gloves with Bluetooth capabilities, whereby the speaker is situated in the thumb, and the mic is in the little finger. So when you talk on the phone, itís like youíre pretending to make a phone call, or making the Hawaiian Shaka sign, all the while youíre actually making a phone call for real. Engadget tested out the Hi-Call glove, and seemed to be a little disappointed with the woolly reception. Sorry! Hi-Call will be available at the beginning of October, for Ä49.
Thanks to Super Moderator Gabriel1 for the heads-up on this story.
