Mmm, at first glance, it just looks like another stupid hipster-friendly product... Now what?

Well, the thing is Gimme isn't just a glove. It also tracks and shares every High-Five you do.

How? Gimme embeds a Bluetooth Low Energy motion sensor. So once you feel and hear that gratifying BAM of hand upon hand, Gimme does too.

Once paired with your smartphone, Gimme gives you the strength with which you've just hit your buddy's hand.

Gimme also saves the exact places where you did each of your palm smacks.

When your High Five friend is wearing a glove too, Gimme identifies who he is, and if that wasn't already the case, automatically adds him as a friend on Facebook and Twitter.

Through a dedicated platform, Gimme lets you browse the last High Fives you or any of your friend did. See an example.

When you run out of battery, simply plug Gimme via any micro-USB cable.

Oh and don't hesitate to use your smartphone, Gimme is a pair of toasty touchscreen-friendly gloves.

Gimme comes in 4 colors: Grey, Mottled Blue, Burgundy and Jacquard.
