Cheap nubs let gloved hands work touchscreens

If you are a geek that lives in cold weather where you need to wear gloves a lot, you know that using the touchscreen on your device with normal gloves doesn’t work. You can get special gloves with little nubs built in to work a touchscreen or you can take off the gloves and use your cold fingers.

If you have a favorite pair of gloves or just don't want to spend the money they want for those special gloves Quirky has you covered with some cool pins that will let any gloves work a touchscreen device called Digits. The devices are round pins that have metal inside the glove and conductive silicon outside. The silicone should keep your screen from being scratched.

The only issue I see with these things is that the pads are large and hitting the small iPhone keys may be hard to do. You can get a four pack of these things for $13.99. That is enough to fix up both of your hands. You can order right now.
