Review: Mujjo capacitive touchscreen gloves for iPhone and iPad

"Mujjo capacitive touchscreen gloves are amust-have for any serious iPhone or iPad user caught in a cold, wintery climate."

Why have I instantly fallen in love with Mujjo's capacitive touchscreen gloves for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad? It's simple, really. I live in Canada where it's routinely been -20 celsius for the last couple of weeks -- so cold that when you go outside your face freezes and the last thing you want to do is pull off your nice warm gloves just to use your iPhone while out and about. You'd rather miss a call, wait to answer a text, or forget about looking something up on the web than risk the frostbite inducing winds and bone chilling snow. But with Mujjo, I don't have to give up my multitouch just to stay warm -- thanks to the capacitive carry-through, I can slide to unlock and tap away all from within the comfort of my gloves.

Keep your gloves on but still use your iOS device with GloveTips [video]

You can imagine the scenario, you are out in the freezing winter weather, your iPhone rings and you can’t answer it; you can if you remove your gloves or use your nose but that is not a great solution. Well GloveTips may have the answer.

GloveTips are small dime sized flexible disks that you mount on your gloves. Each disk has special thread stitched in the center that will interact with capacitive touchscreen devices when you wear your glove.

Yes you can already buy purpose made gloves that you can use with your iPhone. The main difference is that you can use these with your own gloves. The videos after the break show how well GloveTips appear to work and also how they are fitted to your gloves. Not sure how well GloveTips will hold up if your gloves get wet or need washing.

GloveTips are available now at a price $19.99 for a pack of 3. Can you see yourself using this solution? Let us know in the comments.

Whether its the big black leather above, or some woolly mitts, when the weather outside turns frightful and you need to operate a capacitive touchscreen like the iPhone, you can save yourself some cash -- and frostbite -- with a little bit of sewing and a bunch of conductive thread.
