Jennifer on TV: Making gloves for iPhone, iPod Touch, and a homemade memory game
Today on WZZM’s Take Five & Company (see video below), I showed something to help gadget owners fight the chill.
It’s cold outside and a real pain to have to remove our gloves to answer our cell phones.
Here’s how to make a pair of gloves “conductive” so they can use an iPod, iPhone, or other touch-screen device without removing their gloves.
This is a quick and super easy project that can improve a techie’s life with just a few stitches. And it looks like Apple is thinking about making their own version of iPhone gloves.
The project comes from the book Switch Craft: Battery-Powered Crafts to Make and Sew (link takes you to this project) by Alison Lewis with Fang-Yu Lin.
I also showed a fabric memory game project that I made using instructions from Alicia Paulson’s book Stitiched in Time. Check out my interview with Alicia and enter to win a copy of her book.
