    The chill of autumn is upon us, and with it comes the awkward sport of trying to work touch-sensitive phones and gadgets with gloved fingers. One can try toughing it out with fingerless gloves, or we’ve seen some costly solutions in the forms of specialized gloves and capacitive-compatible styluses, but sometimes simple is best: all it takes is a few stitches of conductive thread in the fingertips.

    Conductive thread is available from various sources; SparkFun Electronics comes naturally to mind, but most vendors carrying the LilyPad Arduino will stock a suitable thread as well. Don’t fret if you’ve never sewn before — just a few simple loops are required, and it doesn’t need to be especially tidy. In principle this should work for trackpads and capacitive mice as well, if you use those in the field. For multitouch devices, add a separate conductive bit to each fingertip.

    North Face makes "e-tip" gloves, which are made for touch screens, with ure index finger and the thumb being touch sensitive. The North Face Accessories Accessories ETIP GLOVE I picked them up at urban terrain for 30 bucks.

    grapes also work, as do latex gloves.

    easiest method is to cut the end out of the thumb and index finger of winter gloves.
