Winter is here, and there's nothing more annoying than having to remove your gloves in sub-zero temperatures to work your phone! Notice how you can't interact with a screen through wool or cotton?
Luckily, we've devised a quick hack to sort this out.
In this quick tutorial we show you how you can hack a pair of gloves to make them touchscreen compatible.
All you need is some Electric Paint and some old gloves, so give it a try!

Step 1: Materials
To begin you will need:
1 x Electric Paint Pen
1 x paintbrush
1 x gloves
1 x phone or tablet
Step 2: Electric Paint
To begin, dab a generous droplet of Electric Paint on your paintbrush.
Step 3: Apply
Using your brush, apply this on the tip of your glove's index finger.
Step 4: Dry
Let your glove sit for 5 - 10 minutes to dry.
If you want to seal the paint so it won't smudge, you can now apply a top layer of clear nailpolish over the painted fingertip.
Step 5: Speed It Up!
You can also use a hairdryer to dry the paint.
Step 6: Give It a Go!
Once the paint and varnish have dried you're ready to test it out. Get your phone, put your glove on and give it a go!Success!
No more cold hands this winter.
