TapCaps: So You Can Wear Gloves and Still Use Your Touchscreen Phone

Even though we’re headed towards the warmer summer months, there’s still that random cold spell that makes it nearly impossible to leave the house without gloves on. This becomes a problem when you have to use a touchscreen device, simply tapping or swiping at the screen with a gloved finger makes nothing happen.

The solution? Alice Ning’s TapCaps. They’re tiny capacitive stickers that you’re supposed to stick onto your gloves so you can make it usable with a touchscreen.

TapCaps

Alice plans to come up with smaller, thinner, and more flexible prototypes of the TapCaps, but not until she can raise the necessary funding to get access to in-studio machinery and materials.

That’s where you come in. If you’re interested in supporting this project and getting the TapCaps once they’re made available, then you can make a pledge of at least $25 to the project. Head on over to TapCaps’ Kickstarter page to find out more.
