Touchpad Glove Kit / DIY-Kit

Touchpad Glove Kit

Make yourself smartphone gloves!
The Touchpad Glove DIY-Kit contains conductive yarn, a needle and instructions to make your favorite gloves work with touchscreens. - Most smartphones or tablet computers work with capacitive screens. They only react when you touch them with your bare finger. It doesn't work when you wear gloves because your conductive finger is too isolated from the surface. With the help of conductive yarn, which is plated with silver, you can overcome this barrier and provide a connection between touchscreen and skin. Why not make an innovative product yourself?
