FrontRunners: Talk to the Hand

The Editors

The new Swany G.Cell Bluetooth Glove (www.swanyamerica.com) may never be immortalized in a poster, but it could allow you to call in auction bids from the slopes—without exposing your fingers to the cold. Billed as the world’s first cellular ski glove, the G.Cell ($500) connects to your mobile phone via Bluetooth technology and provides as much as four hours of talk time. The glove vibrates at the wrist when it receives a call, and you answer by touching the back of the glove. An earpiece installed in the tip of the thumb works in conjunction with a mouthpiece in the palm. The G.Cell also has a voice-command function, further ensuring that you can stay in touch without freezing your fingers.
