Smart phone touch screen, NOT with gloves on!

Got my smart phone mounted up and ready to go.

Turned it on, then the trouble came up! The touch screen doesn't work with gloves on.

Sure I saw somewhere once a rubber piece that slips over a glove finger with a little hard rubber button on the end. Kinda like a mini condom!

Anyone know where I might look? No luck with search engines.

WOW! That is amazing! A "capacitive touchscreen"!

Thanks for the site. Am now shopping for some conductive thread.

I tried these for my Droid X2.

They will not work if you have a screen protector on. I decided to get a stylus from Target and hook it to a retractable clip that I mounted near my phone. That works much better for me.

I use a Pogo stylus tethered to my tank bag on my Driod X. Works fine even with an Invisible Shield on the screen.

I did this to my BMW glove and it seems to work.

I got the thread and used a straight needle.

next time I will use one of these...

Reviving an old thread rather than starting a new one...

I just started using my Galaxy S4 as a media player and GPS. First issue - I can't do anything with my gloves on. To top it off, I am getting Warm & Safe heated gloves with a waterproof liner so there is no way to use conductive thread since that will void the warranty.

Thought about using an anti-static wristband with a tether to a small pad on the index finger of each glove. It's one more thing to deal with every time putting on or taking off the gloves.

Interested in the stylus. Didn't think a stylus would work without direct contact with hand. Are you saying the stylus works perfectly fine even when wearing thick gloves? That would be great.

I house my phone in a weather resistant case on the bike so there is a flexible protective cover over it. Bare finger works find for activating the screen so I would think it would be similar as your Invisible Shield.
