first_imgFor those of you that have touchscreen devices, like smartphones, iPods, iPads, etc., a hot item on your holiday lists this year was probably the touchscreen glove — a glove that allows you to stay warm and use your phone. Novel concept, I know. But what about all those gloves you have mixed in with your scarfs and hats? Are they to go unused from here on out? Quirky, a social design site, has an alternative that will let you use your old gloves and text your friend while you’re walking in 10-degree weather. Digits are mini conductive pins that attach to your gloves. Made of conductive silicone, Digits have a metal pin on back which can be attached to your gloves like a thumbtack.You simply place the back side of the digit (the side with the post) inside the fingertip of one of the gloves, and push it through (you won’t be using these with your $100 leather gloves!). Then, twist the other side f the digit onto the post. Voila! Digits retail for $13.99 for a set of four. They’re available in black only.[Via The-Gadgeteer.com]last_img
