O2 want to make a phone that you can wear like glovesJune 20th, 2013 • 5 Comments
And it has an irritating name too! This ‘Talk to the Hand’ initiative sees the designer turning vintage Miu Miu and Pineider gloves with bits of old handsets, supplied by O2 Recycling.
The gloves will have a speaker unit in the thumb and a microphone in the little finger, which will sync with the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth, which means you’ll be able to make calls without getting your actual phone out.
“I hope that my Talk to the Hand project will get people to think again about the waste created by not recycling gadgets,” said Miles. ”While these might not be for everyone, there are hundreds of other uses that old phones can be put to – from being reconditioned and used again to being mined for their components.”
“If a few more people recycle their gadgets rather than send them to landfill, I think this project will have fulfilled its aim.”
We’re hoping for underpants that act as a George Foreman grill.
Brings new meaning to the phrase “Talk to the hand!”
Thank you, I’m here all week.

You’ve not read the name of the product, have you?
Firebox have been selling the same thing for ages now.
Will it dial your Nan when you’re cracking one off to Babestation?
