The new HTC Gluuv: a (April Fools) revolution in technology

Coming off strong from the recent release of the flagship One M8 smartphone, HTC looks to start a 'Revoluution' with their newest invention: a glove which harkens back to the good old days of 1994, complete with holograms, impromptu danceoffs and gigantic boomboxes.

Where others have tried and failed, HTC looks to succeed. The new HTC Gluuv promises a seamless integration with the HTC One M8, and technology "at the tip of your fingers". The device sports an HD 1080P resolution and an 87.2 megapixel camera capable of snapping photos with a simple fistbump, making sporting events and roleplaying as the Wonder Twins all the more enjoyable.

But that's not all. According to HTC, the Gluuv also doubles as a self-defense device -- no doubt indispensable if you ever find yourself in the midst of a futuristic fist fight.

Sadly, the new HTC Gluuv probably isn't real. From all accounts, it looks like an early April Fools joke -- and as much as we'd love to wear a futuristic glove a-la the Fallout series, that technology may not happen for a long while. Still, the HTC Gluuv serves as an excellent marketing device for the new HTC One M8. Since HTC has hit a rough patch in recent months, any promotion helps; especially if that promotion comes in the form of a retro glove; 90s fans rejoice.
