Introduction: Bluetooth Glove: Version 3.0

Bachelor in Electrical and Electronics.

A glove with a bluetooth module built-in to receive calls while you are on bike or car, In a cool new way.

Step 1: Materials Needed:

-A Glove
-A Push button
-Wire
-Soldering Iron
-Soldering wire
-Most importantly a cheap bluetooth headset (which you are happy to experiment with)

Step 2: Preparing All the Parts

-Crack open the headset with a knife and remove the circuit board with its component fixed.
-You will get speaker, mic, battery, a charging port.

Step 3: Extending the Components

-Extend the reach of speaker & mic by soldering extra wire.
-Extend the onboard button & charging port likewise. (As it is difficult to use the onboard button once it is on the glove, same for charging port).

Step 4: Arranging the Parts

-Arrange the speaker and mic in the right place in the glove and sew them to fix them in a place.
-Speaker in the thumb.
-Mic in the index finger or pinky finger.
-If you want you can place the the circuit board in a plastic film & seal it to make it waterproof (COOL!) & extend the wires through it.
-The other option is to put epoxy adhesive on the whole circuit board, to make it rigid and give it strength, as the wires through circuit board are very delicate.


Step 5: Finishing Up

-Place the circuit board in lower part of the glove and sew it to fix it.
-Sew the push button and charging port.
-Volla! Done.

Step 6: Charging Up

Step 7: Testing the Glove

-Push the power button for 3sec to turn on the power.
-Connect with your cell phone having bluetooth.
-Now make a call to check speaker and mic.
-It WORKS! GREAT!
-Best of luck with yours.
-Any queries are welcome.

    Brah... Did u just stole this idea and first pic from householdhacker?

    Awesome!! In my mind, apply it into a helmet. So, a bike rider should be able to answer a call while riding.

    Great Job! I do a science experiment every Saturday morning on one of our local news stations and just wanted you to know that this one was so cool that I just made this so that I can share it on air. Each week, I give instructions on how to do the experiment at home and, If it is ok with you, I would like to direct the audience to this instructable?

    I am glad that you like it and i am perfectly ok with you directing your audience to my instructable in fact i'll be happy.

    Great job! I did one of these with a bone conducting speaker so everything could be put on the wrist. Could make for an interesting version 2.0! Might consider making a bluetooth version, I have a cheap headset I could use! The one I made is wired was faster to build / higher quality sound.

    Cute design. Kinda defeats the point of a "hands free" headset, but that isn't the point. ;-)

    One could use a similar technique to make a Maxwell Smart style shoe phone (well the shoe would just be the headset...)

    It was about time for something like this!

    If you make the gesture... use it for real!

    GREAT!

    that's really cool and I will try to make one of these and you should like bring that to the people that make like the iphones and stuff and like show them or something but that's pretty cool

    Tacti-Cool...

    If I was to make this I'd place the speaker on the middle finger and the mic at the wrist so as to look like a movie style, secret service agent. Lol...

    Your fore finger would then be free to install an led light? Or perhaps a finger gun?

    Now that I've thought about it, lights on your gloves could definitely be helpful...

    Great idea, thanks for sharing it with us....
