TapCaps: So You Can Wear Gloves and Still Use Your Touchscreen Phone
Even though we’re headed towards the warmer summer months, there’s still that random cold spell that makes it nearly impossible to leave the house without gloves on. This becomes a problem when you have to use a touchscreen device, simply tapping or swiping at the screen with a gloved finger makes nothing happen.

I didn’t even know that Justin Bieber had a steampunk robot arm, but then again, I don’t really follow the Biebs. I’m not exactly in his target demo. Apparently, he donned this curious bit of steampunk wear for a photo shoot and a holiday music video a few months back.

The Magic Glove Vacuum and Dusts All At Once
I remember back in the day when vacuum cleaners were huge, noisy, metallic machines that had to be lugged around or dragged around on stands with wheels.

Vulcan Oven Mitt: Live Long and Potholder
Boy, this must be a record – two posts about oven mitts on Technabob in a single day. I know that it seems weird for a techy geek blog, but this one was just too good to pass up.

Bluetooth Glove: From Headset to Handset

Bluetooth Glove: From Headset to Handset
Here’s an adorably childish hack from Rachel, the Lead Java Developer at Instructables. She stuffed the guts of a Bluetooth headset into a glove in such a way that she could actually talk on the phone by making that gesture we usually make when pretending to talk on the phone:

Rock Paper Scissors Glove: Computers Don’T Play Games for Fun, They Play to Win.
Maker/Problem-solver Steve Hoefer made an Arduino-based glove that can play Rock Paper Scissors. Why? Why the hell not! You think a nerd would pass up the opportunity to play with a computer? The glove has an accelerometer that detects when the user is shaking his fist to signify the beginning of a round.

Deranged Animals Keep Your Hands Warm While You Type
Despite the fact that it’s currently zero-degrees Fahrenheit outside my door, my hands don’t feel that cold while I’m typing this. That said, I’m sure some of you guys out there have some cold, numb hands when the air conditioning is blowing in your office.

Wanna look like a complete freak while you’re sitting at your computer surfing the web? Then look no further than these ridiculous USB hand warmers that look like stuffed animals. I don’t know if the fluffy bunnies or the pooh bears are more insane.

Click Oven Mitts: Pixelated Potholders
I don’t usually associate computers with cooking, but that doesn’t mean that your geek style shouldn’t find its way into your kitchen. Brazilian designer Anderson Horta’s Clicking Kitchen Grip oven mitts are inspired by the little pixels of the hand cursor from your computer.

Like the NES Power Glove on Steroids

Like the NES Power Glove on Steroids
Way back in 1989, long before today’s Wii-mote and the SIXAXIS motion sensing controllers, Mattel launched their rather silly looking, but ahead-of-its-time Power Glove controller for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now, Immersion Corporation is offering a modern update to the concept with their CyberGlove II Wireless Data Glove.
