Touchscreen-compatible gloves aren’t a new concept, but they usually come with some sort of very obvious nib on the fingertips. These new touchscreen gloves from Mojju, on the other hand, look just like a normal pair – compact, light, and pocket-friendly – but with capacitive capabilities woven right throughout. The gloves were reviewed on GigaOm late last year, but were criticized for not being quite warm enough for winter weather (the kind where your hands seek the shelter of pockets instead of staying out in -20 degrees Celcius).
The newest version of Mujjo’s gloves are coming out next month and their website reports that they’re warmer, more durable (less pilling), and feature a better fit. They’re available in two sizes (s/m, m/l) and four colours, and I hope to take a look at a pair or two in a month’s time with a full review. I’ll really be lookng forward to this one because I was under the impression that touchscreen-compatible gloves simply had to look clunky and feature awkward finger nubs – here’s to Mujjo proving me very, very wrong.
