You may remember that a little while ago we reported on what looked like a pair of normal winter gloves, which in actual fact had bluetooth capabilities, allowing you to take calls simply by holding your thumb and forefinger up to your ear and mouth. The gloves, which can be charged in thirty minutes and give you twenty hours of talk time, are great if you want to avoid getting cold hands. However, if you love tinkering and building your own gadgets, did you know it is possible to build your own bluetooth gloves?
