AnyGlove is a liquid polymer that is claimed to make any glove conductive, when applied to its fingertips

It’s that time of year again, when those of us living in the higher latitudes are thwarted by our non-conductive gloves if we try to use touchscreen devices outdoors. Well, don’t bin those gloves just yet – a new product by the name of AnyGlove is claimed to be able to solve the problem.

First off, there are other products that allow touchscreen-users to wear gloves. These include gloves made from conductive fibers, gloves with conductive finger pads, and even conductive buttons that can be attached to gloves’ fingertips.

AnyGlove is unique, however, in that it’s a liquid polymer that is applied to the tips of existing gloves. Just a few drops per finger will apparently do the trick on gloves made out of almost any material, although it may discolor lightly-colored fabric. It also isn’t permanent, as it needs to be periodically reapplied – one dose will last anywhere from several days to a few months, depending on the material and how heavily the glove is used.

One bottle will set you back US$14.95. More information is available in the video below.
