No, I'm not gesturing for you to call me, I'm talking into my glove... "Hi-Call’s Bluetooth Glove"

global nerdy - Hi-Call’s Bluetooth Glove Lets You Make and Take Calls Using the “Call Me” Hand Gesture

You probably recognize this as the gesture, which pantomimes speaking on a old phone handset, as the symbol for “call me”:

The Hi-Call Bluetooth glove handset now lets you use that same gesture to make a call:


With a speaker in the thumb, a microphone in the pinkie finger and Bluetooth components and indicators near the wrist, the Hi-Call glove lets you make and take calls using the well-known hand gesture. It’ll be good for a laugh when you demonstrate it in front of friends, and strangers watching you use the glove from a distance will think you’re one of those crazy people who talk to themselves (although Bluetooth earpieces have had the same effect for years).
