Glovys does this without using any batteries and without needing to be calibrated in any way, ‘Gizmag‘ reported. The device is attached to the smartphone simply by pressing the sticky pads on all four corners. These sticky pads can be reused and washed, potentially enabling users to mount Glovys to their phone multiple times. Glovys is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The estimated retail price of the device is $35. Also Read - Xiaomi is hiding the front camera on its next Mi flagship smartphone
