Is it snowing where you live currently? Are temperatures well below freezing? Are you outside? If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is likely that you are wearing gloves right now. If you are just looking to keep warm that is okay, but if you want to use your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad you’re out of luck. The touch screens on these devices aren’t compatible with gloves so if you want to use them you’ll have to pull at least one of the gloves off and risk frostbite in order to use one of Apple’s popular devices.
Now there is a solution that will save your fingers, keep you warm, and still allow you to use your touch screens.
Quirky’s Digits solve this problem by giving you a set of four conductive pins that you can quickly attach to the finger tips of your favorite pair of gloves and they only cost $14 for a pack of four.
One part of the pin goes inside the gloves finger tip and the other part goes on the outside. On the outside the Digit pins are covered with a conductive silicone disc that will allow you to use your favorite iOS devices without getting your hands frostbitten.
These sure beat the idea of using a sausage to control our iPhones.
