    Gimmicky1 - and expensive - new gloves allow chatterboxes(唠叨的人) to take the term 'handsfree' to a new level - by talking into them as they make a call.   The gloves are known as 'Talk to the Hand' and cost £1,000 a pair.   They nete with a speaker unit embedded2 into the thumb and a microphone built into the little finger that can be connected to any mobile handset using Bluetooth.   Artist Sean Miles designed the innovative3 gloves that double as a phone in part of his project that illustrates4 the possibilities of gadget5 recycling.   He uses vintage Miu Miu and Pineider gloves and netbines them with parts from mobile handsets recycled through O2, which netmissioned the project.   Mobile phone users will be able to keep their hands warm while they chat without taking their phone out of their pocket or handbag.   Mr Miles, from Windsor, designed two pairs of the new gloves - one in pink and the other in brown and yellow.   They will appear in an exhibition this July and visitors will be able to win the gloves.   If demand is high, they will then be produced on a larger scale.   O2 Recycle, which backed the project, estimate that there are already 70 million unused mobile handsets in the UK.   The service pays up to 260 pounds to those who recycle gadgets6 including phones, handheld consoles, SatNavs, MP3 players and digital cameras.   Designer Sean Miles, the man behind the designs, hopes his work will get people thinking about recycling.   The 41-year-old said: 'I hope that my Talk to the Hand project will get people to think again about the waste created by not recycling gadgets.   'While these might not be for everyone, there are hundreds of other uses that old phones can be put to - from being reconditioned and used again to being mined for their netponents7.   'If a few more people recycle their gadgets rather than send them to landfill, I think this project will have fulfilled its aim.'
