Hand it to Telefingers at #CES

Smartphones with multitouch are great, but they require bare fingers to work. Apple's reliance on as few hard buttons as possible means the touchscreen interface is so important for daily use. Combine this with cold weather, when many users wear gloves and it becomes difficult if not impossible to answer your phone let alone use apps. Several vendors have offered gloves that include conductive metal thread that works with today's touchscreens, but many have that material only on the thumb and forefinger. Telefingers offers gloves with three conductive fingers on each hand, making it easier to perform more sophisticated gestures. Telefingers are available in assorted sizes for $20.
