Can you convert motorcycle gloves into touchscreen gloves?
However, you can quickly and cheaply convert any of your favourite gloves into touchscreen gloves. We鈥檝e come across two motorcycle products that do this, but there may be more: GloveTacts, Farkle Fingers. 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.

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.
