Something I hate about winter is that it is darn near impossible to use your phone with gloves on. The problem being, it’s too cold to not have gloves on in the first place, and you don’t want to take them off after your hands are sufficiently warm. It can be super expensive to buy a brand new pair of gloves just because they have conductive nubs on them.
Quirky has a dandy new product called Digits that are pretty much conductive hatpins…for gloves. They only run about 13-15 bucks and are tipped in silicone so they won’t destroy the face of your phone. These little nubs can be pinned onto the pointer finger and thumb (or whichever fingers you use to navigate your phone) and won’t impede finger movement. The only hassle will be if you have a lightweight glove material, or something like a leather glove where the hole won’t go away…ever.
