Swany, how we love ya

“Talk to the hand” just got a whole new meaning; a company called Swany has released Bluetooth-enabled gloves. “When you get a call, you’ll feel it vibrating around your wrist. Hit the back of the glove to answer and then hold it up to your face [or move your face towards the glove?]. There’s a mic built into the thumb and a speaker built into the palm.” Good, if expensive ($500), option for people with dexterity disabilities; can the HandSolo be far behind?
