The Gloves of the Twenty-First Century
Our gloves have been embarrassing us on touchscreens for upwards of a decade now, but it looks like the technology has finally caught up.
Feast your eyes on the world’s first iPhone-friendly gloves—or at least the first ones that aren’t hideous.
These Dots gloves manage to pull off the trick without rubber pumps, patches or anything visible. Instead, they rely on microfibers in the fingertips. They’re so thin you can barely feel them, but they connect to the touch sensors just fine. And thanks to a collab with Opening Ceremony, they’ve turned out pretty handsome too.
Of course, our heart is still with this crop of hand-warmers…but we haven’t gotten Angry Birds yet.
Update: Opening Ceremony sold out of the gloves in the picture, but you can find a slightly less flashy version on sale here.
