So, I consider myself a simple gal who doesn’t ask for much. Just the ability to text in a raging snowstorm without having to take my gloves off first. Traditional gloves interfere with the sensors in a cellphone that respond to the electric signals transmitted through the skin.
In answer to my plea, glove makers and technology got together and the inevitable tech-glove was born!
Some tech-glove manufacturers have utilized small conductive fabric patches on two fingers of each hand for the pointer/thumb perusing action, while others incorporate a thin woven fabric of silver throughout for a completely conductive gloved hand.
You don’t have to sacrifice chic for tech either… prices range anywhere from $10 for knitted polyester thermal numbers to the limit of your inappropriate texting and talking needs! I bought a great pair with the finger pad patches from Conways for $5.99. And they’re warm too!
Science Stuff: What? You say you wanna make your own touch tech gloves? You nerd — I thought you’d never ask!
