Didn't you have to take off your gloves when you had to text someone outside? Don't let your hands freeze in the cold! You can simply attach sugru on the tips of fingers (on gloves, of course) and be able to touch the screen!

All you need is a disposable sugru, glove, scissors, and conductive copper tape.
