Knitted touchscreen gloves have been around for a while now. I use a pair every winter so I can use my iPhone outside without my hands getting cold. Knitted touchscreen gloves at first seemed magical when they came out, but the engineering behind them is simple enough: Conductive threads are interwoven with the glove fibers to transmit the electrical signals from your skin to the iPhone's touchscreen.
Those that like leather gloves haven't had a whole lot of options, however. Leather touchscreen gloves are often limited to patches of conductive material in a few fingertips that look ridiculous. Well, no more! I've been trying out a pair of Mujjo's Leather Crochet Touchscreen Gloves and they bring the style back to using your iPhone with gloves on.
The leather part of Mujjo's gloves (the part that touches the iPhone's touchscreen) is made from Ethiopian lambskin, while the crochet top is made from Egyptian cotton. From outside appearances, these leather gloves look like normal high-quality leather gloves you'd find in any good department store. There are no visible signs in the form of the usual dots of conductive material on their fingertips. Instead, Mujjo has used nanotechnology to integrate the leather with conductive properties allowing them to be readable by the iPhone's touchscreen -- and they work marvelously.
