London: The end of frozen fingers! Having a touchscreen phone in winter can be a pain, especially when you have to constantly take your gloves off to use it. This may now be a thing of the past after a company came up with a pair of leather gloves that allow you to use your smartphone without taking them off.
The Leather Touchscreen Gloves, by a Dutch firm, keeps users' hands warm, while at the same time allowing them to tap away on the screen, the Daily Mail reported. The Ethiopian lambskin gloves use nanotechnology integrated into the leather to make them touchscreen compatible, and have been treated for wind and water resistance.
"Regular leather gloves don't work with touchscreens; these gloves do! These leather gloves work flawlessly with almost every touchscreen, enabled by revolutionary nanotechnology," a description on the company's website read.
"The nanotechnology functions independent from the human skin, this enables us to fully insulate the gloves with a layer of soft 100 per cent wool lining," the firm Mujjo said. "The leather fully retains its characteristics, affording the wearer maximum comfort and dexterity just like any other glove," it said.
