In this paper, we describe the design of an interactive glove, 'Teleglove' in order to investigate new ways of crafting and interacting with mobile applications through wearable technology. The system we designed was a simple control to answer a call, end a call and make it silent by just pressing two fingers of the glove, grounded in basic interaction challenges with touch screens using ordinary gloves. The glove was built quickly using newly available small-scale sensor board and connects to a smartphone via the ANT+ protocol. The robust and simple interaction with the application using the glove suggests many opportunities for practices of crafting similar systems on a broader scale.
