HOLD THE PHONE
Produced by Hi Fun, an accessories firm based in Italy, the Hi Call features a tiny speaker in the thumb of the left glove and a mini-microphone in its pinkie. It’s been tested with iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone, and, according to the company, is good for 20 hours of talk time on a single charge (or 10 days in standby mode). A set of buttons on the back lets you perform other functions, such as pairing your device and hanging up.

But despite the genius of the idea—we’re suckers for items that serve multiple purposes—we’re not entirely confident the concept will catch on. As cool as talking into your glove is, the fact remains that you’ll be a person…that person…talking into your glove.
