How to Make Your Gloves Compatible with Touchscreen Cameras

Here’s a video by Make’s Becky Stern showing how you can sew some conductive thread into your glove to make it compatible with capacitive touchscreens.

    Great idea – living in Canada, this becomes a nuisance for 5 months out of the year. Does anybody have any experience with conductive thread and scratches?

    You don’t have to do this left-handed. Flip the glove inside out and fit it over your non-dominant hand. Just remember that it’s inside-out now and you have to leave the trailing thread on the outside.

    Isotoner makes gloves now for just this purpose. They’ve added conductive material in index finger and thumb of each glove. Just picked a pair up at Jcpennys for $20

    Really cool video! Just searched the net if these gloves are available in retail as I am not that creative as on the video ;) a Dutch based company offers great gloves for the lazy bastards like me ;)
