Re: gifted Hey, that was my gift of choice this year! Trying to get the family moving. They seemed excited, but we'll see how long that lasts for. Maybe it'll be their re-gift of choice next year.

Re: Haptic gloves Couldn't find them, suspect they must be out there. How about these "Streets of New York" gloves?

Haptic gloves I know this will comes as a surprise, but I'm not much of a Hello Kitty guy. Do they have haptic gloves with sports themes--maybe Chicago Bulls red and black with Michael Jordan's No. 23? Or (nerd alert) maybe a Green Lantern theme, with a graphic of the Lantern's ring on one of the fingers?

Re: gifted The one design flaw with the wi-fi hat is ... the wearer can't see when the signal beacon is activated. So you have to do a pretend selfie to see if your hat is lit. Or carry around a mirror. Now if it were a wristband...

Re: gifted @mendyk, I kinda want that hat!

Give me the sock!! Socks don't suck!! 

A prediction for 2014 - the return of the phone sock. Maybe not in shiny grey, though....
