Most smart devices have capacitive screen technology, which uses the human body conductivity to detect minute current changes, which are then registered by the device as inputs. GloveTacts are made of materials that mimic our own body’s conductivity, so the effect of using GloveTacs to control the device is no different than using our own skin.
No, GloveTacts provide conductivity without the need for skin contact.
Yes they will, because they are conductive and they will stick to almost any material.
GloveTacts will last the life of the glove you attach them to. The material is extremely durable and its conductive properties don’t change over time.
The color is conditioned by the use of carbon microfibers that provide conductivity. Color variations negatively affect the material conductivity.
No, any glove will work, though a dirty or greasy glove may not provide the best surface for the adhesive to attach to.
They will work with any device that has a capacitive screen or surface.
In all likelihood, yes. Our only concern is with the material to which the GloveTacts will attach to. Cotton, wool, leather, man-made leather, synthetics, lycra and most man made fibers present no problem. Silicone surfaces do not allow the adhesive adhesion, but if there are other materials surrounding the silicone GloveTacts will attach.
GloveTacts mimic our skin’s conductivity. You’ll be able to perform any task as you would without gloves on.
Insulated gloves will work just fine, but depending on the thickness of your glove you may have to slow down your actions to increase accuracy.
The operating temperature range of GloveTacts is from -40F/C to 160F/70C and they will work wet. Humidity or wetness don’t affect their conductivity but a dry screen will provide more consistency.
