LED glove concept channels Michael Jackson's style

If you're a fan of Michael Jackson or just love a good glove, we want to know what you think about this odd design by Wang Lili. Love it? Hate it? We've got more details about Lili's 'Night Communication' concept to help you make up your mind.

This glove was designed to help you communicate with your friends when it's dark and you're too far away for a cozy verbal chat. It's solar powered (a bit odd for something designed to work at night), with LEDs that outline the wearer's hand, and made from non-slip silicone. It also has vents for breathability in case you're doing something active like night hiking.

Here's the problem I see with this thing: if you're far enough away from me that we can't just yell to communicate, I'm probably not going to be able to pick up on the subtleties of hand gestures and signs beyond either frantic waving or not frantic waving. But maybe I'm in the minority?

The glove is currently just a concept, but if you have a penchant for eccentric accessories and the patience for DIY, you could probably make gloves like Lili's Night Communication with a little effort. In fact, these folks give a pretty thorough tutorial on how to make LED gloves yourself.
