More and more cameras are being launched with touchscreen interfaces these days, especially as mobile operating systems are starting to appear in point-and-shoots and turn them into smartphone look-alikes. For those of you who live in a colder environment and often find yourself wearing gloves that aren’t compatible with touchscreen cameras, there’s now a way to make those gloves touchscreen compatible that doesn’t involve sewing conductive thread into them.
It’s called AnyGlove, and is a special capacitive gel that can be applied to — as the name implies — any glove or clothing item.
We’ve featured special gloves and mittens designed for photographers before, but what if your camera uses a touchscreen instead of physical controls? 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.
