Gloves don't work on touchscreen

Modified on Mon, 19 Feb at 2:47 PM

Believe it or not, you can make your non touchscreen gloves touch sensitive. Touchscreen gloves are often made with small wires in the fingertips, which can use the capacitive touchscreen on our CI Pad. These wires can wear away after a couple months of use. Luckily, there are a few DIY fixes:

  1. Get some dry graphite spray and spray the parts of the glove you want to be touch sensitive. 

  2. Get some graphite powder (scrape a pencil on some sandpaper. Will take multiple sharpenings) and mix it with a bit of water. Then dip your glove fingers in the mixture and let dry. This coating will be touch sensitive until it wears off. Once it does, simply dip again.
