A little early in the year for these, but still. Early Winter Night Biking Gloves: a prototype design by Irene Posch of Fashioning Technology. LED indication arrows (powered by a 3V coin battery hidden in the cuff) activate when you make a fist.

Conductive thread in the fingertips allow you to interact with a smartphone, updating your Facebook status as you careen, no-handed into oncoming traffic.
