When Apple introduced Touch ID, it created a quandry for touchscreen gloves. If you did away with a short passcode, in favor of the fingerprint reader, then it became a nuisance to wear gloves, even if they had capacitive fingers to work on a smartphone. Now, with Face ID, touchscreen gloves are more practical, and Mujjo offers a wide selection of Touchscreen Gloves (starting at $ 24.13).
If you’re partial to knit, Mujjo has got you covered, literally. If you want something more luxurious, the company also offers a really stylish high-end black leather model with a Velcro closure. I really liked these as they had a bit of a Kylo Ren vibe! Just make sure you use the online sizing guide to order the right size as they have a snug fit. The Velcro does help adjust the size around the wrist, but you’ll still want to get a good measurement.
What I liked about most of the pairs is that they don’t look like traditional smartphone touch-capable gloves. Those usually have an obvious capacitive tip, often in a different color, which is a giveaway that these are tech gloves. Most folks wouldn’t know that the Mujjo gloves serve a secret purpose… smartphone use!

Android Auto-compatible head units aren’t too difficult to find these days, but they cost a pretty penny and usually won’t fit properly in older cars. A developer created a solution called Crankshaft to address both of those issues, and all you need to make it a reality is a Raspberry Pi 3 and a touchscreen.
Crankshaft is a free “turnkey” GNU/Linux distribution with a simple proposition:
Buy a Raspberry Pi 3 and a 7-inch touchscreen (and a case, if you’d like)
Apple has been granted a patent for a laptop with a second display in place of the keyboard. This could take the iPad Pro to the next level, or be the touchscreen MacBook many have asked for. Or, realistically, it might not be anything at all. While this patent means that Apple has definitely considered […]
Apple has been granted a patent that imagines using an OLED or LCD display as a dynamic keyboard — hinting at a possible addition to the MacBook or iPad Pro lineup. Patent number 9,904,502, titled “Dual display equipment with enhanced visibility and suppressed reflections,” was published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week.

The Room series of mobile games has always been very good at one particular thing: presenting you with strange objects, and then letting you manipulate them to uncover their secrets. It’s a concept that works incredibly well on a touchscreen device, and the series’s haunting atmosphere only adds to the mystery. Over the course of three games, that formula, despite its singular focus, hasn’t lost its appeal. In fact, with the latest game — The Room: Old Sins, which is out now on iOS — developer Fireproof has crafted what may be the best version yet.
Old Sins opens with you, an investigator, exploring the attic of a dark, creepy house for some kind of artifact. Your first main task is to switch on a floodlight, which then illuminates a…
Suitable Technologies, maker of the Beam range of telepresence robots, has unveiled the BeamPro 2 — its latest high-end device. Like all telepresence bots, the BeamPro 2’s main function is Skype-on-wheels; letting employees call in to their workplace remotely and trundle around it with the help of an app. It’s fun! If not always practical.
The Pro2 adds a number of improvements and refinements to the original BeamPro, including a 24-inch LCD touch display and two “super-wide” 12-megapixel HD cameras with 12x digital zoom. It also comes with 3D depth sensors (optional on the original BeamPro), ambient light sensors (to automatically adjust screen brightness), and a trio of speakers that Suitable Technologies claims can reproduce…
Sony announced a new in-car audio head unit at CES today that integrates with Android Auto, the XAV-AX5000, the centerpiece of which is a bezel-less and flush 6.95″ touch display.
How bezel-less and how flush? Sony dares characterize it as “astonishingly flat.” Oh my.
The touchscreen is capacitive, as opposed to the previous model’s, which was resistive. It can be connected to a vehicle’s rear camera, features aluminum hardware keys along the bottom for basic system operation, and Sony says that the unit boots up “soon after ignition is turned on.” Well, one would hope.
