Conductive Fingertips

IKEA developed a kit that enables people to use their smart phones, iPads, and other touch screens while wearing cold weather gloves. Norwegians bought up 12,000 kits in just two weeks! Maybe they'll make more. -via The Daily What Geek

Aerostich, a vendor of motorcycle touring clothing and accessories, has had leather gloves with conductive stitching in the index fingers for some time now. I like the idea of just selling the thread to make any gloves touchscreen-friendly though. That's the sort of thing that makes a good idea a GREAT idea.

I think the one thing I like about IKEA the most is the way most products are just so pragmatic and efficient. Yes, I've been sucked-in to the Yellow-and-Blue cult.

Isotoner came out last winter with gloves with the same thing on the thumb and index finger. I bought them at Wal*Mart!I don't get why this is such a new big deal thing other then it's IKEA. This thread and DIY instructions have been on the web for at least two years now.
