The Glove One Mobile Phone Idea



 

 

Here is a great idea for a mobile phone in the shape of a glove; it looks a little like the glove worn by the James Bond villain, Dr No! but its design although looking a little scary there is a serious and practical side to it, but more to the point, is that it actually works and that is just cool! Of course, you will not be able to do much with gloved hand, so it is not all good!

 

 

These are the details for this very interesting concept idea for a mobile phone;

 

Glove One is a wearable mobile communication device. It presents a futile and fragile technology with which to augment ourselves. A cell phone which, in order to use, one must sacrifice their hand.  It is both the literalization of Sherry Turkle’s notion of technology as a “phantom limb”, in how we augment ourselves through an ambivalent reliance on it, as well as a celebration of the freedom we seek in our devices. Emotional investment becomes physical, as the functionality of the device depends on the dysfunctionality of the wearer.
