Explosive Scraps and Thoughts by Chris Apollo Lynn

iPhone With Gloves? Yes We Can!

with 2 comments

I love my iPhone, but I hate how you can’t use the touchscreen while wearing gloves.  Good thing Apple just patented a glove that works with the iPhone. Check out this patent drawing:

Not too shabby looking. When I first saw the patent, I shudder at having to buy one more Apple product. So I did a little searching and found a few gloves already in the wild to help iPhone users get through the next few months of winter. Check it:

Tavo Glove looks nice, but I’m not a fan of fleece.

Then there is the Freehands.  For me, the whole point of getting special gloves is to AVOID having to expose flesh to cold.

The Northface ETip glove looks cool. Kinda reminds me of Tron.

Overall, my favorite has to be the iPhone glove from DOTS.  They look like the gloves I already wear, but with those cool tips at the end.

  1. Unfortunately I purchased some that were supposed to work with the iPhone and they did, mediocrely. There were two problems: 1. You have to make sure they fit really well. Mine were a little large for my fingers, so it make using the iPhone difficult. I would have to turn the glove to match my finger print each time I wanted to use it. 2. After I washed the gloves, they stopped working altogether.
