Freehands gloves have removable finger tips for touchscreen phone use


A quickie for those of you who own, or are about to own, a phone with a touchscreen. You know, iPhone, G1, et cetera.

The guy who founded Cool Hunting—an online version of the “strange but true” section of your local newspaper—started Freehands, a company that creates gloves with removable fingertips. The idea here is that whenever you need to call someone, answer a text message or fiddle about on Google Maps you simply fold back the finger tip part and touch away.

There’s three types of gloves, leather ($40), stretch ($30) and fleece ($20).

Now we have a gift to give that person you really don’t care about, but can’t outright ignore, especially if they drive.
