Samsung may have recently unveiled two smart watches and the Gear Fit, but the manufacturer isn't finished with wearables just yet. Tonight, in a post to Samsung Tomorrow, Samsung unveiled Samsung Fingers, a smart glove with features that truly revolutionize your hand experience.

The device carries a Super Emo-LED display "for the technology-sensitive consumer," and a 16MP camera, along with Wi-Fi connectivity and a boatload of amazing all-over-hand features.

Samsung-Fingers_Talk-to-the-hand

Samsung is looking to fundamentally change the way people interact with one another with Fingers. When you're already in a conversation and someone else wants to join, you can simply have them "talk to the hand," recording their input on Fingers until you're ready to listen to it later.

Samsung-Fingers_Palm-Rec02

The world's first all-over-hand wearable also has palm recognition, whereby the smart glove can sense information related to what a user is holding, and provide helpful feedback on what the user should do with that object. Carrying a smoothie around on a hot summer day? Fingers can help maintain its chilly temperature by manipulating potential and kinetic energy.

Samsung-Fingers_Voice-and-Snap-AMP

What's more, Fingers features "Voice & Snap AMP" which helps users get attention, promising to amplify snapping or speech "to the point where it overwhelms other people." No longer will your important comments go unnoticed.

Samsung-Fingers_S-charge

Besides all that, Fingers offers solar charging "by elegantly raising your hand towards the sun," along with phone gestures, "pull my finger" flatulence auditory reproduction, a laser pointer, fashionable glove variations, and more. To see Samsung's full (Fool?) announcement, hit the link below.

    Hmmm, a lot of those specs are better than phones, now I know what they are doing ;)

  • thisislethal

    At least Google's pranks are funny.... and a bit more realistic.

    • Richard Harker

      Because Google Smell was totally more realistic.

      • Nathan Bryant

        Well, they already make screens with a specific vibration pattern to touch to give a simulated textured feeling of the object being displayed.

    • Youri

      check out the gmail shelfies lol

  • TSON

    lmao, Super Emo Led

    • David

      Poor screen, it's gonna kill itself!
      LOL

    In the last pic, It allows you to share your energy to create an S Bomb (Spirit Bomb)

    • theunknown

      Kaa meh haa meh haaa ;-)

  • NikhilW

    Where is the poll: "Are you going to buy Samsung Fingers"??

    • http://twitter.com/anishbhalerao Anish Bhalerao

      No. But I might consider the Samsung Galaxy Fingers Mini Pro Grand Neo DUOS edition. :/

  • Matt McNair

    Looks like HTC had the same idea http://www.htc.com/www/go/gluuv/

  • andy_o

    spoiler alert!

  • FunkyMonkey

    Ha Ha Samsung made a funnyy

  • Kevin

    To charge simply hold your hand to the sky and give Goku your energy

    *immediately installs Bitch Slap app*

  • Captain Canada

    The real joke will be when they say they weren't joking and release this thing.

    • NemaCystX

      the real joke would also be them still having that fugly home button on such a device as this

      • abqnm

        And the menu button instead of recent tasks. One step forward and two steps back.

  • NemaCystX

    HTC beat Samsung to the punch, they posted their April fools on their facebook page, and its like the Nintendo Powerglove

  • EH101

    Michael Jackson would have loved this.

  • jesuguru

    Don't wear this using the urinal, or you may "touchwiz"

  • Brendan

    HTC also did a glove prank that's even more ridiculous called the HTC Gluuv.

    • abqnm

      I love the HTC BOOMBASS. I want that even more than the Gluuv.

  • sgtGiggsy

    April's fool joke on March 31, because April's fool jokes on April 1 are too mainstream.

    • Shitiz Garg

      Apparently time zones are too mainstream as well

      • sgtGiggsy

        Android Police is a US site, so yes, it's rather strange to see an April's fool joke, when even in Europe it's so early that nearly nobody is awake.

        • Daniel Antón García

          Samsung is a South Korean company... It is already April's fools... AP is just telling you as soon as they know. That is the definition of "News"

    • Robert Firestone

      It was April 1st when this came out.

  • ehTuBrutus

    Take my money !

  • Carmichael Sherman

    Camera should be the middle finger lol.

  • Akshay Mehta

    Even in a prank they didn't get rid of that home button. God!😓

  • Sorian

    As much as this is a joke, parts of it would be nice.

    Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0
    Delete Mic, Speaker (maybe), other connection types, Palm-Rec, Thermometer, S-laser (Seriously?), camera
    Put the screen on the top of your hand
    Make a second glove with either a slot to move the components from left to right and sell the gloves in a pair.
    Add palm padding.

    Sounds like a decent cycling glove. *Runs and hides from the angry mob*

  • Matthew Fry

    Wow. The puns are in full force on that post haha.

  • Cael

    I wouldn't be surprised if they came out with a realistic version of this next year.
