What the heck is a touchscreen glove?
A touchscreen glove is a glove made with conductive fibers that allow your touchscreen and finger to communicate despite the glove being in the way. Several companies have introduced touchscreen gloves in the last year, or so, including Etre Toucy, the North Face’s Etips, and GliderGloves. However, Agloves have risen to the top of the market, and are top rated for accuracy and precision.
Yes, but aren’t touchscreens heat-sensitive?
No, actually. Touchscreens are actually capacitive. Capacitive touchscreens mean that the touchscreen in actually responding to your body’s natural bio-electricity. Your bio-electricity travels in the oils and salts found naturally in your skin. But, when you are cold, your body instinctively reduces the moisture in your extremities to keep warm. The lack of moisture decreases the amount of bio-electricity found in your hands, thus decreasing your access to your device. Agloves have conductive material throughout the glove, allowing for the glove to optimize the full surface area of your hand. So, even if you have cold hands all the time, you can use your touchscreen device with Agloves.
What is Agloves’ secret?
The secret is the silver. (“Ag” = silver on the Periodic Table of the Elements). Silver is the most conductive element that man knows about. More conductive than copper, gold or nickle. Silver is knit throughout the Agloves, giving wearer full 10-finger access to any capacitive touchscreen.
Other cool things about silver?
- Silver is a natural thermal regulator; bringing heat from your palm out to your fingertips.
- Silver is antimicrobial. Folks in urban areas, love Agloves because you canpurchase subway tickets on the kiosks (which are touchscreen) and have a barrier to germs.
