Remember when Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake made that 鈥#Hashtag鈥 video making fun of everyone鈥檚 obsession with tags? It was funny because it鈥檚 true, we鈥檙e totally #obsessed with using hashtags. A group of Olin College students recently took the hashtag love to the next level by creating gloves that will send out a tweet just by making the hashtag motion. You read that right 鈥 you make the pound sign and say your favorite phrase (ours would obviously be聽#shopbrit)聽and the Hashtag Gloves聽help you tweet 鈥檈m out.

We know, we鈥檙e omg-ing over it too. The gloves, created in early November during a 24-hour hackathon, have conductive fabric on the tips of the fingers with voltage across them. When you make the hashtag symbol with your fingers, you short the voltage, your voice gets detected and your message is sent.

鈥淭he original idea was for snowboarding. If somebody can鈥檛 take their hands out of their pockets, they could use the gloves to say 鈥榯hat was a great run鈥 or something,鈥 one of the creators Keenen Zucker tells Daily Dot. They say it is quite simple, so we鈥檒l believe them.

Although still in the concept phase, the group thinks they could make a prototype (this time with Bluetooth technology and wireless connectivity to your phone) that聽could ring in around $50.聽Check out the gloves in action聽below:
