It can be difficult to keep up that dastardly appearance while using a computer. The last thing you want is for some secret agent to burst into your office, only to find you hunched over the keyboard updating the World Domination Master Plan Budget (FY2015-2016) in Excel. How embarrassing! But no longer is this a concern, thanks to the Key-vil Genius!

A pair of custom made gloves have contact points embedded in the fingertips. To use, simply tent your fingers together as though you're casually watching your master plan unfold. Type by tapping the corresponding fingers on each hand together. Keystrokes consist of sequences of various chorded combinations. It takes a bit of training to get used to, and it's not quite as fast as a traditional keyboard, but that's a small price to pay for style, isn't it?

And that's not all! An optical sensor in the thumb allows you to operate the mouse by stroking your beard. In this mode, you can click by tapping your index finger thoughtfully against your chin. And of course, you can twirl your mustache to scroll.

Whether you're just planning your first attempt at plunging the global economy into chaos, or you've already executed dozens of underlings for incompetence after your foolproof plans have gone awry, look the part—with the Key-vil Genius!

       Welllll, now that you have solved this problem, we can get back to work...right??? Or is that your work?

       You probably don't need gloves. Image analysis is good enough to "watch" and respond to all of the above (Kinect, Leap Motion, etc).
