  • Can you convert motorcycle gloves into touchscreen gloves?

  • However, you can quickly and cheaply convert any of your favourite gloves into touchscreen gloves.

GloveTacts are thin faux-suede stickers that go on the index finger and/or thumbs because many people use their thumbs for texting.

  • How do gloves work with touch screens?

  • Most modern touch screens use capacitive touchscreen which you can read about at length here, but in short it means that for a glove to work with a touch screen it needs to complete a circuit with your finger. So that’s what we’re going to do by putting some conductive thread between the screen and our finger.

  • Why do motorcycle gloves have pads on the fingers?

  • Many motorcycle gloves now come with pads on the index finger so the gloves can be used with touchscreen such as smartphones, GPS units and MP3 players. Touchscreen sensors detect a tiny electrical charge transferred to the finger which completes a circuit and drops the voltage at that point on the screen, activating the button鈥檚 function.

  • Not many motorcycle glove makers have adapted to the smartphone era yet. Here are the ones that have. These gloves are a modern classic, cleanly integrating impact protection into the knuckles and offering a seriously nice looking pair of short-cuff city gloves. Adding touchscreen threads just makes them that much better.
