In case you haven’t noticed, in the UK at the moment we have:
2. Lots of pointy nipples
It’s so damn cold outside! Any Asian kid whose parents used to have a catering business will relate to me when I say, remember going to the Cash & Carry and going through the refrigerated section?
It’s like like that when you’re outside, like being in a chiller.
But the cold can’t stop me from
tweeting, sending abusive emails and buying crap on eBay writing essential emails and these Etre Fivepoint Gloves are right up my geeky street:
Thanks to their specially-designed conductive fingertips, our gloves do what other gloves don’t: They conduct electricity! Which means that you can touch, tap and type on touch-screens without ever having to take them off – so you stay in-touch while your hands stay toasty!
So basically, these gloves allow you to use your touch screens without the usual restrictions of gloves!!…..
Do they work?
Yes they do but there are pros and cons.
- They work better for touch screen than any other glove I have had before. Can you play Angry Birds with it? Yes. Can you pay for an eBay item with it? Yes. That’s all you need to know.
- The design is nice – it’s simple and stylish, good for men and women
- I found that the gloves struggled more with swiping movements than tapping ones. A bit more pressure is needed to swipe but it’s not impossible.
- Mr C thinks that these gloves aren’t as warm as his leather ones (he’s a serial killer at the weekends*), and lack a ‘cosyness’.
I guess because he drives to work, he can’t use his phone on the way anyway and therefore spends less time outdoors in this weather than I do. Whereas see appreciate the practical use of the gloves more, because I commute. Phones numb the pain of public transport – FACT.
At the moment these come in three sizes, small, medium and large (I wear medium) and comes in blue with grey tips (pictured). More colours will be added in the new year if your fingers haven’t already dropped off from frostbite.
They cost £24.99 each, buy them here - well worth it if you are a hardcore tech user like me (Mr C has a large pair, if that isn’t ultimate geek, I don’t know what is).
