Innovative Glove One, 3D Printed Cellphone (video)

An innovative concept called the Glove One has been created using a 3D printer and plenty of modding by Bryan Cera. Showing a very different way to use your mobile phone, in the shape of a glove. Bryan Cera is a Milwaukee-based designer who specialises in re-purposed electronics and custom built circuits.Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.

Bryan Cera explains a little more about his Glove one concept, that has transformed a mobile phone into something you can now wear.

“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. While we enjoy the fantasies they offer, we rethink the technologies we construct and reflect on how they construct us.”

Unfortunately the Glove One is just a prototype at the moment, but you never know one day we might all be wearing our mobile phones in a similar way.
