The worlds first communication glove: Swany G-Cell

G_Cell_gloves.jpgGlove manufacturer Swany, known worldwide as an innovation leader for high-tech sports gloves and Texsys GmbH, a Research and experimental development company from Germany presented during ispo winter 2008 the next generation of Interactive Fashion in form of the G-CELL™, a glove with integrated Bluetooth cellphone link.

This revolutionary glove has a microphone and speaker integrated as well as the call and end button, a light to give visual indication of an incoming call and a vibration function to alert you of a caller.

Set up is easy: pair the G-CELL™ gloves with your Bluetooth enabled cellphone like any other BT accessory and your are good to go / speak. Over are the time you have to rummage through your pockets to get on your cellphone only to discover your caller lost patients and gave up. With the G-CELL™ you are always one hand gesture away from your face to pick up all the important calls.

Some technical data of the G-CELL™ gloves:

  • Bluetooth 2.0 complient
  • Voice Dialing compliant
  • Vibration and Visual Alarm
  • Standby around 240 hours
  • 48 hours talk-time
  • Rechargeable Lithium Ion Polymer Battery
  • Waterproof electronic system

While this concept is a great example for interactive design and fashion, the use will be limited to ski slopes considering the design of the gloves. I can not imagine anyone will use such gloves beside winter sport activities.

The cost of this high tech G-CELL™ gloves is not known at this moment but I guess people hat have to stay connected and expect to make or receive important calls while skiing will not mind the additional cost.

  4. would there be a way to incorpate a weapon in there somewhere like the one clarence has in robocop?
