Artist Sean Miles has added to his collection of vintage fashion accessories made from recycled phone parts, unveiling a pair of gloves that double as a phone in part of a project that illustrates the possibilities of gadget recycling.

Dubbed the ?Talk to the Hand,? Miles’ creations use vintage Mui Mui and Pineider gloves, combining them with parts from mobile handsets recycled through O2, which commissioned the project.

The gloves – which comprise a speaker unit embedded in the thumb and microphone built into in the little finger of the gloves – can be connected to any existing mobile phone handset using Bluetooth, meaning customers can keep their hands warm while they chat.

The ?Talk to the Hand? gloves have been ?upcycled? – the process of converting waste materials or otherwise useless products into a new, desirable item – by Miles and O2 Recycle as part of an on-going exploration of what can be done with recycled gadgets.
