Many of the touch-screen devices (like the iPhone) only work when touched by a hand, as opposed to a glove or stylus. That’s because it uses a “capacitive” rather than “resistive” system in order to allow for multi-touch gestures. Don’t ask me for a clearer explanation of that, ’cause you’re not getting one.
Ok, so now it’s winter, and those nut-cases who choose to live in places like Chicago or elsewhere north of the Mason-Dixon line are realizing that they can’t check their email on the street without taking off their gloves.
So why doesn’t someone build one for warmth and conductivity? Sell it as an iPhone glove?
