If watching someone walk down the street using a Bluetooth earpiece gives you the douche chills — this newest iPhone accessory form Hi-Fun will render you speechless.
The call-receiving Bluetooth handset glove hides a small speaker in the thumb and a microphone inside the pinky — all designed to make you look like a major toolbag while you talk to the hand roaming the wintery outdoors.
Engadget's Brian Heater took the wonder glove for a test drive on the IFA Electronics trade show floor and struggled to make a meaningful connection with this handy new accessory.
"In spite of turning up the handset volume as loud as possible, we had a lot of trouble actually hearing something on the showfloor and the fellow on the other end seemed to be having similar issues, leading to quite probably the first time I've ever used the phrase "I'm sorry, I can't hear you, I'm talking into a glove."
The "Hi-Call" Bluetooth Glove is expected to go on sale sometime in October for about $60 USD (€49). Expect uncomfortable feelings of buyers remorse to come free upon delivery.
