Digits Conductive Pins: the Missing Link Between Gloves and Touchscreens

At last, you can now poke and prod your touchscreen even while wearing gloves. And no, you won’t need a sausage to do so. Quirky recently unveiled Digits, a set of conductive pins that attach to gloves. You can pin them to your hands too, if you have a high tolerance for pain.

You might be wondering why the Digits use pins instead of maybe Velcro patches to attach to a glove. The thing is, your fingers need to be in contact with the pin, or the charge from your hand won’t reach the touchscreen:

Digits come in packs of four, and are now on pre-sale at Quirky for $12 (USD) (pre-sale means that the number of orders must meet a predetermined quota before manufacturing begins).
