Touch Screen Gloves / Smart Gloves - Pink
As featured on THE GADGET SHOW Christmas episode!!
We are often told that the iPhone is a game changer. Revolutionary. Ahead of it's time even. The touch screen interface is a joy to use. We find it hard to disagree, but come December we sometimes think that perhaps the iPhone was designed for a future of eternal summer time thanks to global warming. Because using a touch screen smartphone in the cold isn't fun at all.
You know how it is. You are out in the snow. Your phone rings. Once you manage to extract your phone from whichever pocket it is buried in, you swipe to answer and nothing happens. Swipe again. Still nothing. Eventually the caller gives up and rings off. The problem is that the capacitive screens found on smartphones just don't work when used with gloved fingers.
So when out and about in the cold, not only do you have to dig through your coat's voluminous pockets to find your ringing phone, you also have to remove your gloves to actually answer the call. All within a matter of seconds. Definitely not cool.
These Touch Screen Smart Gloves however feature an amazing conductive thread which provides the required capitance (we think that's some kind of electrical connection magic for touchscreens) in each fingertip. So now when the phone rings you can swipe and answer a call as normal. Although we should warn you that the Touch Screen Gloves can't help with actually finding your phone in the first place.
On a less technical note, these Touch Screen Smart Gloves are finished in a high quality, soft, wool-like fabric to help keep your digits cosy and warm whatever the weather. And supplied as they are in a one-size-fits-all size, they should fit you regardless of the size of your hands. And in a spirit of genuine fairness, the Touch Screen Gloves contain conductive threads in all ten fingers so that left and right-handers are provided for. So you can pinch, tap and scroll with any finger of your choice. Show off!
