Gauntlet Idea

Ok, so amidst my studying of 300+ slides of physiology information for my 5th exam of the semester this Friday, I looked at my phone and an idea popped into my head. I have a Motorola Droid X, and it has a massive 4.3" screen. I got to wondering if I could somehow incorporate the phone into a bomb gauntlet and have the touchscreen displaying the appropriate funny red characters (maybe even in a live Android wallpaper or .gif moveable file?). I would mold the gauntlet with a mounting dock, in which the screen would sit flush with the top, then build another resin piece to lie on top (could be screwed into the gauntlet base. I would try to leave enough of the top of the phone uncovered in order to reach the screen lock button, which would allow the screen to be turned on. You could then swipe the lock to unlock the screen and your glowing characters could show up! Besides the fact that if you wore a bluetooth headset under your mask you could still take calls even in costume XP

I really haven't the time at the moment to try to draw up a rough plan, but on the basis of my verbal sketch, anybody think it useful?

As always, comments/criticisms/OMGs (haha) are always accepted with open arms!

If you wanted you could cut a small fingerprint-sized hole in your right glove's index finger and overlay it with mesh, might provide enough finger surface to activate the screen receptor while remaining small enough to not endanger the integrity of your look Just a thought.
