Make Your Gloves Touchscreen Friendly With Special Thread


We’ve all seen the various sets of gloves that promise to allow us to use our iPhone or iPod Touch while still keeping our hands warm.  The problem is some of them are a little pricey.  Plus if you already have a perfectly good pair of gloves you might not want to replace them with a different pair.  Instead of buying that new pair of gloves there’s an easy solution so that your current gloves will work with a touchscreen.

Just add a little conductive thread to your gloves and it’ll make it so that you can still use the touchscreen.  The conductive thread does seem to be right around $20, but that’s for a large supply of the stuff.  If you offered to do this fix for a few friends and got them to chip in on the thread though, it’d end up being cheaper for everyone involved.  You can check out the tutorial on how to pull this off through Instructables.
