Touchscreen Friendly Winter Gloves

Sunday, January 09th, 2011

For gadget lovers who live in colder climates, the question of how to use a touchscreen with freezing fingers is relevant this time of year.  Most touchscreen devices, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and Droid, require charges from the fingertips in order to work correctly.  Touch the screen with a glove covering the fingers just won’t work.    

One of the top makers of touchscreen-friendly gloves is Freehands.  Their gloves feature removable flaps for the index finger and thumb and come in fleece, cashmere or wool.  They also make touchscreen-friendly sports gloves.  Prices range from $16 to $45.

To see a complete lineup of gloves that are well-suited for touchscreens, see this Mashable review.

See Your Past and Future Face with HourFace

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

HourFace is a 99 cent iPhone app that starts with a portrait photo and then performs some magic. First the photo is uploaded. In just moments, a 3D animated version of the face is downloaded. Then lines and wrinkles begin to appear and the face gradually becomes older looking. Turn the phone upside down, and time goes backwards. The face becomes younger.

See a demo of HourFace in this YouTube video. The app runs on iPhone or iPod Touch devices.
