London, Oct 3: An enterprising Italian firm has come to the rescue of touchscreen owners, who are faced with a dilemma – how to use their handset without freezing in winters, with a pair of gloves they can talk to.
Italian technology company Hi-Fun are the brains behind the creation.
The left glove has a speaker and microphone sewn into the thumb and little finger, while the fingertips have a special thread so a touchscreen can be used.
The gloves will be costing around 50 pounds when they go on sale, next week.
“The hi-Call Man Black is the new sensational product for winter 2012,” the Daily Mail quoted the company, as saying on their website.
“A pair of warm gloves, perfect for every sport, from skiing to running, with hi-Call you can control the touch screen of your smartphone thanks to the capacitive technology.
“The left glove has a speaker and a microphone sewed into thumb and little finger, in order to speak to the phone, while protecting from cold,” it said.
The glove also has a built in rechargeable battery, which has a talk time of 20 hours.
The gadget can be recharged using a cable. (ANI)
