O2 News Update: O2 Launch Bluetooth Gloves
O2 News Update: O2 have taken a huge leap forward in technology by unveiling a pair of gloves that allow customers to make and receive telephone calls.
Telecommunications company O2 have made a big steps in technology – and products for the sake of products – by unveiling a pair of gloves that allow customers to hold conversations over the phone, through the gloves. The gloves can be paired with any handset via Bluetooth meaning customers can have warm hands and still take phone calls.
“Yes, O2 has actually launched gloves that you can talk into when making phone calls, which are a steal at just £1,000 a pair.
O2 has partnered with artist Sean Miles to create this unnecessary product, which apparently will pair with any smartphone over Bluetooth so you can talk into your hand rather than your phone. We don’t really see the benefit here, as you’ll still have to raise your hand to your face, and you’ll probably get some really weird looks on the street.
Still, O2 thinks it and Miles have done a good job. Speaking about the product, which is the latest addition to O2’s Recycle scheme, the network said that there are speaker units embedded in the thumbs of the gloves and microphones built into the little fingers.
Miles, who designed the gloves, said, “I hope that my Talk to the Hand project will get people to think again about the waste created by not recycling gadgets. While these might not be for everyone, there are hundreds of other uses that old phones can be put to – from being reconditioned and used again to being mined for their components.
‘If a few more people recycle their gadgets rather than send them to landfill, I think this project will have fulfilled its aim.’
Mile also said he is now working on combining phones with handbags, ‘so people don’t spend time rummaging around in their bags to find a phone when it rings.’”
How we have survived up until this point is simply beyond comprehension. The need for gradually more ridiculous products that encourage people to multi-task is incredibly low, and yet the number of products available that fit a little too easily into this category is vast to say the least.
O2 are part of the European based telecommunications company Telefonica and they provide mobile phone and landline tariffs across the UK as well as internet services. Their customer service department is available for contact seven days a week, regardless of your enquiry. For all help and support, contact O2 customer services and speak to one of their friendly and helpful employees.
