Quirky Digits Lets Cold Geeks Work Their iPhones

It doesn’t get cold here in Texas often, so I don’t even own a pair of gloves. My brother-in-law lived up in Minnesota for few years where going out without gloves on wasn’t good for your health. The catch for geeks in these cold areas with capacitive touchscreen devices is that the screens can’t be used when wearing most normal gloves.

These days, you can get gloves with little conductive nubs on them, but those tend to be expensive and the may not be your favorite style. Quirky has a new product that you can purchase now that adds little nubs to any pair of gloves for controlling your touchscreen device.

The nubs are called Digits and you can pick up a set of four of them right now for $13.99 (USD). The hubs are like hatpins that stick through the fabric of your gloves and have metal on the inside and conductive silicone on the outside. The silicone dots are soft so your screen won’t be scratched.
