Picture of iPod Mittens
Make a glove or mitten that can be used on any mp3 player that requires conductivity to control (such as all iPods). It sure is cheaper and more stylish than buying this one - http://www.tavoproducts.com/TavoGloves.html

Step 1: Find materials

You will need:
- any gloves or mittens that you like, can be any style!
- conductive thread, order by email at http://members.shaw.ca/ubik/thread/order.html

I already own conductive thread, but this could be done with any conductive material such as conductive tape (found in the plumbing section of a hardware store), or even a small piece of metal or aluminum foil.

that's great i live in ND where it's colder than the canucks
This looks nice, but I'm a little confused. Does the conductive thread let you just navigate the menus without touching the buttons? Or how does it work? :)

Hum, few frozen cables here in Texas. I bet I could build a custom cable that used a battery pack to heat a cable that ran the length of the cord to "heat" the cable slightly (resistance) and keep the cable flexible....I could add a variable resistor and voltage to control the heat, like a pair of battery powered hunting socks...perhaps I'll scavange a set and rip the wires out? Or perhaps use a bluetooth transmitter and bluetooth headphone setup for "cord" free on bitter Minnesota days. Leave it to the Cupertino type to create a warm weather only device...

ha...thats true...cold weather and battery powered devices don't mix! talk about reduced battery time!
I leave my mp3 player in my car overnight, the battery gets zapped if its cold. Turn the heat up and put the mp3 player over one of the vents, warming it up gets about another 30mins out of the battery before it totally dies

Hey, thats a pretty spiffy idea. Use an iPod sock to keep your iPod warm.
