Seamless gloves with conductive finger pads
Tuesday, 02 July 2013

New York - A US knitting specialist has created a seamless knit glove with electrically conductive finger regions enabling a user to operate an electronic device with a capacitive touch screen.

In the cell phone and tablet industry there are two major categories of touchscreen displays: capacitive touchscreens and resistive touchscreens. When individuals wearing gloves wish to operate capacitive touch screen cellular telephones or computer tablets, the conductive touch screen does not operate properly because the screen is designed to change electrical state when the user's finger touches the screen.
