People wear gloves; people drop phones. People who wear gloves drop more phones.
Google glass and Android wear do a great job of keeping your phone in your pocket, but they are both pretty expensive. We hacked together a Bluetooth glove and a Myo armband to use gestures to prompt different actions such as launch Google Now, pick up and end phone calls, return Yo's, read out the time, and read out latest text messages and notifications. A microphone and a speaker are embedded in the glove at the pinky and thumb respectively. Embedded in the back of the glove is a Bluetooth module and an inductive charger for wireless charging.
