When you read the title you ask yourself, like I did when I was scrounging through Kickstarter Open Kickstarter in a new window, why would you want to have Bluetooth enabled motorcycle gloves? And the answer is simple and quite handy; to control your smartphone while riding!

Two guys in the USA have founded BEARTek Gloves and they are looking for funding at Kickstarter Open Kickstarter link in a new window. The BEARTek Open BEARTEK link in a new window glove is a glove that gets "paired" with your smartphone (iPhone, Android), and from there on in, controls you phone. Controlling your smartphone is done by touching the fingertips of your glove with your thumb (like snapping your fingers).

By touching your fingertips, you can not only answer your phone when it rings, but also change your song being played, lower or increase the volume, etc. There are 6 contact points on the glove, enough to control any device (so maybe you could play Angry Birds with this glove...Big Grin Smiley).

The system can be very useful for those who do not want to buy a wireless headset/communicator for your helmet, but still want listen to music, navigator/GPS or receive phone calls by wearing earbuds. Many present-day wireless headsets offer these facilities, with some more upmarket ones enabling you to control your phone via voice commands. But the BEARTek glove allows you to use your phone without adding stuff to your helmet, just use what you've got. Or alternatively, use the glove in combination with your Bluetooth headset (no more fumbling with the helmet control unit).

Have a look at the video below, that will explain thing a bit more. The guys are looking for funding using the crowd-funding organization Kickstarter (with its usual rewards system).

So give them a hand, and a few dollars:
