Use your iPad in the winter with touch-screen gloves

1 min read

Here’s a scenario that’s sure to come up this winter for many pilots: you’re bundled up on a clear, cold morning, and just after engine start you reach for your iPad to pull up a few ATC frequencies and load the taxiway diagram, only to realize your iPad doesn’t respond to the input from your fleece gloves. It’s still too cold to take off your gloves, but interacting with your iPad’s digital charts is impossible. What to do?

Fortunately Isotoner has developed a pair of black fleece gloves fitted with special conductive thread on the index fingers and thumbs that convey an electrical impulse to your device’s screen. These allow you to interact with all your favorite apps and keep your hands warm at the same time. Problem solved.
