Gloves that can turn your palm into a Phone

Tech Glove

Have you ever played with your Hands or Palm? Like turning them into a Phone. I can remember vividly, i have done that several times. But its real now; you can achieve that with what i call a Magic Glove *Winks*.

The gloves are known as 'Talk to the Hand' and cost £1,000 a pair.

They come with a speaker unit embedded into the thumb and a microphone built into the little finger that can be connected to any mobile handset using Bluetooth.

The Designer Artist Sean Miles designed the innovative gloves that double as a phone in part of his project that illustrates the possibilities of gadget recycling. He uses vintage Miu Miu and Pineider gloves and combines them with parts from mobile handsets recycled through O2, which commissioned the project.

This is what you get...
  • Gloves have a speaker in the thumb and a microphone in the little finger and can connect to any phone using Bluetooth
  • Design keeps hands warm and eliminates searching in bags or pockets
Amazing stuff.

Femi Fani Kayode - MKO Abiola, Susan Rice & a deadly cup of tea


 Ambassador Susan Rice was up until recently the American Ambassador to the United Nations. Her long-standing aspiration of becoming the Secretary of State for her country was dashed when the Republicans in the Senate started sharpening their knives in anticipation of her formal nomination for that position by President Barak Obama.

Sensing that her nomination would not scale through the Senate and that she would not be confirmed as Secretary of State due to the role she played in the cover up of the Benghazi affair in which the American Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other American citizens were murdered by a group of islamist terrorists, her nomination was withdrawn.

Instead of Secretary of State, President Obama has now nominated her for the position of National Security Advisor which is a job that does not require Senate approval or confirmation. I wish Susan Rice well in her new assignment but I am constrained to ask the following questions and the people of Nigeria would like to have the answers. What did she put in the tea that she served to Chief MKO Abiola on July 8th 1998 just before he died? She was one of the last people that saw him alive, she served him some tea, he coughed violently, collapsed right in front of her and her team and one hour later he was dead. What was in the tea? Was it Abuja ''green tea'', Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Liptons or some other more exotic brand?
