Burton's Mix Master Gloves Can Wirelessly Control Your iPhone (Sort Of)

With winter slowly approaching, these scarf-less, glove-less, care-free days are going to disappear. And when that happens, your iPhone is going to be a bitch to use. Not with Burton's Mix Master Gloves though, it's a pair of mittens that can control your iPhone without even touching it.

It's not as insanely cool as it sounds but it's still kinda, sorta effective. Here's how it works: there's a dongle you plug into your iPhone and a receiver that's attached to the left glove. There are buttons on the left glove that let you control your iPhone's music player (volume, play/pause, skip, etc.) so when you hit those buttons, your iPhone wil respond accordingly. It's only for controlling the music player, there's no Minority Report-type wizardry here.

Still, it's perfect for snowboarders, skiiers and people like me, who will walk to work during winter and would prefer happy tunes and warm fingers to cheer me up. The remote works within a 100ft radius and costs $160. [Burton via TrendHunter]
