Brodmann Blades Ping Pong Paddle Puts the Game In the Palm of Your Hand

Can you believe it? Ping Pong paddle gloves! The game, it has changed!

Now, granted, I haven't actually slipped my hand into one of these potentially revolutionary paddles, but the design alone had me salivating this morning and that has to mean something, right?

The $100 set includes the two paddles, four balls, terrycloth wristbands and a carrying case. The designer claims the more intimate palm-to-ball feel will result in a faster game with more spin and better control.

No idea if that's true or not, but I can guarantee using these paddles will result in a completely different game of table tennis. Question now is whether or not the International Table Tennis Federation takes notice. [Broadmann via Uncrate]
