Having fun with the Swany g.cell glove, 2013 SIA Snow Show
Talk to the hand, with Swany’s g.cell glove. What looks to be a standard winter glove is actually a cool gadget; the g.cell features Bluetooth-integration, allowing the glove to pair with your cellular device, and the glove doubles as a phone. The glove vibrates in the thumb, and also the wrist area to notify you of an incoming call. The speaker and the microphone are located on the glove’s thumb, and sound quality is comparable to putting your phone on speaker mode. Pressing one of two buttons on the glove answers and ends the call. The g.cell can also activate voice controls. Just think: you’ll never have to take off your glove on the chairlift—and suffer frozen fingers—to take that important call.
