Keyglove #05 – Prototype C Touchscreen Demo from Jeff Rowberg on Vimeo.

I’m still waiting on the WT12 breakout boards to arrive—both from BatchPCB and the custom one I created (more on that later)—and all of the activity over at the Keyglove Kickstarter page and Engadget article has been tremendously exciting. But in the mean time, I’ve got a short video up to demonstrate the behavior of the current prototype when used with capacitive touch screens.

You can really get this to work with any glove if you have the right kind of fabric on it, but the fact that the Keyglove also has this functionality makes it just that much more appealing. I know I wouldn’t want to have to take the glove off or use my non-dominant hand every time I wanted to use my smartphone or iPad. These touchscreens are all over the place today, so it’s definitely a useful feature.
