Conductive Gloves

Muji gloves with a conductive finger for touchscreen technology and a reflection on the smartphone market's evolution.
Muji gloves with a conductive finger for touchscreen technology. Who's in charge around here again? We now need to buy new clothing with additional pockets for devices, holes for headphones and materials to allow for interaction. We design tools and then the tools design us. As an aside, I was doing some research recently and in the ten years between 2006 and 2016 the smartphone market is estimated to shift from being 7 percent touchscreen to 97 percent touchscreen respectively. Not sure if that's impressive or just a sad statement about the industry's inability to think beyond what's happening right now.
