Mujjo's Conductive Gloves Swipe to Unlock on a Cold Day

One of the biggest issues with the iPhone, especially amongst those who live in colder climes, is the tricky question of how best to answer the phone while wearing gloves. Hip-Hop producer Will.I.Am noted on the car show Top Gear that he wears fingerless gloves in order to use all his touchscreen devices, and claimed that capacitive touch gloves weren't fashionable.


Fashionable or not, a Dutch company has created a set of gloves knitted with silver-coated nylon fibers in the fabric. The silver in the Mujjo gloves makes them conductive and touchscreen compatible, and, according to TechCrunch, they work as designed.
I tried these during a few colder Brooklyn afternoons and, like most gloves, they kept my hands warm. Unlike most gloves, I could use them to tap my iPhone screen. Could they be used to tap your iPhone screen with your knuckle? Sure. They’re full of conductive thread so smack away.


Mujjo's touchscreen gloves come in only two sizes, but stretch to accommodate the largest of hands. They are available from Mujjo's website for €24.95 (about US$33) plus shipping. These aren't the only touchscreen gloves on the market, but Mujjo's pair work as advertised.

There should def be an advertisement disclaimer. These types of gloves have been around for a while, and there's nothing unique about the ones from this company (other then the higher cost).

Only 2 sizes??

For $33, are they twice as good as my Agloves?

What a useless piece of news.

I've been using my €5 conductive finger gloves for months.

The north face etip gloves

These have been pretty popular especially since the Gadget Show featured them last year just as it snowed in the UK.

Durability is a bit questionable in the conductive fabric. I always trash liner gloves so might not be the best judge. They have a grip print so you don't drop the phone too.


peace out

Better than Agloves?

I agree with lodenmuse. My Agloves cost $17.99 and look the same as Mujjo's, perform well and keep my hands warm. I cannot justify paying double for a glove that performs fine. I would rather just get a 2nd pair as I lose gloves easily.

Not the first to do this for sure. My wife has the Agloves (http://www.amazon.com/Agloves-screen-gloves-iPhone-texting/dp/B004A9QMPE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327961812&sr=8-1) which are pretty much identical to the gloves in the "article," if you can call it that.

Love the Top Gear reference. I'm not sure how it's relevant to this page, but I welcome it nevertheless. The new season is off to a good start :)
