There’s a company called Dolica here at Distree XXL and they’ve gloves coming out later this year that will let those in northern climes use their touch screens without freezing their fingers off.
According to Daniel Calderon, account manager at Dolica, in Russia it gets so cold that people answer their iPhones with their noses.
So then, D-Gloves – touch screen texting gloves. How do they work? The gloves contain metal conductive material woven into the fabric for all 10 digits. The first gloves will be available in September this year, costing around $20 retail.
They’re washable and according to the guys “even work for ladies with long acrylic nails”.
Target markets? Obviously Russia, Canada and places where it gets so cold that it’s brass monkeys territory. They’re going to make sport gloves and leather gloves too, eventually.
This is what they look like.
