A technology in search of a purpose?

From Yahoo comes this story of a new approach to cell phones: 

Futurists predict that we'll one day have gadgets like cell phones as part of our bodies. Designer Bryan Cera asks "Why wait?" Cera has designed a literal phone handset that you wear like a glove.

My question is, "Why would we want to do this?"  But perhaps I am a Luddite and am missing the next great phase in human technological interfaces.

Here's the video (click here if you cannot view it):

Reminds me of the recent episode of the comic strip Zits (a great strip if you have teenagers) where a girl had had her phone surgically attached to her hand and all her friends were envious!
