The gloves pictured below are magic gloves. How magic you might ask? I’m wearing them as I type this…on my iPhone!

Agloves are conductive gloves designed to be used with capacitance touch screens like the iPhone. They use conductive silver thread (hence the name, the chemical symbol is Ag after all) when making the gloves which is what let’s you operate the touch screen while wearing them. And they really do work. Typing is a little more cumbersome, but not terribly so. They aren’t the thickest of gloves, but I can wear them as a liner underneath a heavier pair. It is also true that they are not exactly water-proof. But those hardly take away from what is really important; namely these are gloves I can wear and still use my iPhone. Get hype!
