The Fujitsu Glove could possibly be the next big thing in the wearable technology department. It is the Japanese company's answer to the gesture-control devices popping up around the world. But it isn't just any answer, it is a rather stylish one. As though modelled after Madonna's lace glove from the '80s, the Fujitsu Glove is a fashionable device that people wouldn't mind wearing.

Yet its aesthetic doesn't take away from the Fujitsu Glove's capabilities. Equipped with a Near Field Communication (NFC) tag reader, the Fujitsu Glove is meant to be used in professional settings where taking out a smartphone or tablet is not a good idea. It can receive work instructions and other information just by touching an object. Stats for Retro Wearable Devices Trending: Older & Buzzing
