Yes, but it would have to be a different type of glove with built-in electronics. These touch screen gloves only allow certain fingers to stick out, or have a coating on them that the touch screens can sense.
Technically that could still work. It could be for board game or even a simple 2-D type of game. Think about how most kiosks and touch screens work. The same functionality could apply to the glove with certain games.
definitely these gloves will suite for most of the places in northern hemisphere where people cant even operate their phone though they have a good capacitive touch screen phones these gloves have conducting layer to give contact to the screen and these gloves are soft warm and light weight too. i enjoy wearing them and feels different.
Interesting innovation. I wonder if the glove material has been evaluated or rated for medical or clinical diagnostic environments. Med techs often work with lab equipment where AC is cranked up high and gloves are standard issue. With more and more touch screen interfaces being used in these environments, you can begin to appreciate the demand.
Think broader! Researchers in just about any area of Life Sciences would be a target. I live 10 minutes away from Cold Spring Harbor Labs, the infamous DNA research center. If I had a few samples of these gloves, I'm sure I'd get a few orders!
Its really a great innovation. Touchscreen gloves enables you to use touch-technology without taking off gloves. These are useful in the areas like northern hemisphere where people cannot operate their touchscreens in a cold weather. They will keep you warm at the sametime you can also enjoy using your touchscreen phone,ipad etc.
has anyone actually used these gloves to compare the comfort level of the touchscreen with and without gloves? Also how expensive are these as i can imagine that one would also want to keep the price in mind before buying them?
since the price of these tocuhscreen gloves are almost equal to normal gloves people from northern hemisphere can buy these touchscreen gloves instead of buying normal ones which keep them warm in a cold weather and make them more comfortable in using their touchscreen phones etc.
I didn't even know that these gloves existed. I will have to look for them and check them out. I can't tell you how many times I am in my car waiting for it to warm up a bit and text in the meantime. I am usually freezing, the car is very cold and having to take my gloves off is a pain. I get cold easily so the gloves would be great for me. I wonder if they reduce smudging on the device. I hate it when my screen is full of finger prints.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
