General

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 GloveTacts to control the device is no different than using our own skin.

No, GloveTacts provide conductivity without the need for skin contact.

GloveTacts usable life will depend on the gloves, use and environment. Conductivity is unlikely to stop but the supporting film may wear out overtime.

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.

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. We provide a set of large contacts for insulated gloves.

The operating temperature range of GloveTacts is from -4F/-20C to 113F/45C and they will work wet. Humidity or wetness don’t affect their conductivity but a dry screen will provide more consistency. A very hot environment may affect the adhesive performance increasing tackiness which may result in the contacts moving.
