Looks like the perfect tool for the next Splinter cell:

Google Smart Gloves can see and feel for you. Patent granted!
Google’s “seeing with your hand” concept has recently been granted a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office. The wearable devices involves a combination of cameras on the fingertips, gyroscopes, a compass, accelerometer, motion sensors, CPU, memory, onboard storage and wireless communications. It’s basically a computer you can wear on your hands.
Smart Glove basically acts as a “sensing” device. The fingertip cameras will be able to see surfaces, and are even meant to act as microscopes. As such, a user can theoretically place one’s finger on any surface and – coupled with an AR interface — will be able to see the object magnified.
Please also have a lokk at this article about usability:

In Minority Report, the characters operate a complex information space by gesturing wildly in the space in front of their screens. As Tog found when filming Starfire, it's very tiring to keep your arms in the air while using a computer. Gestures do have their place, but not as the primary user interface for office systems.
