The idea of development is owned by the canadian experts from the company’s Vancouver. The liquid needs to be applied to the gloves fingers and then blow dry. Nanotips penetrates into the fibers of the fabric and provides conduction of electrical signals from the fingers to the screen. The developer has successfully tested dozens of couples – from the most subtle to the winter sports and working nitrile gloves.
The substance resembles the usual female Lac. The advantages of the liquid before special gloves to operate the touch screens that lose their properties after a certain period of time, while the liquid can be applied several times, say the developers. Three drops Nanotips enough for intensive use gloves with your iPhone from one week to one month.
Even if the gloves get wet, the properties of the Nanotips will not disappear, so they can be washed and play in the snow. For bright things, fabric which can change color, developed a special version of the solution Nanotips Blue.
To buy Nanotips “Leathers and Rubbers and For Fabrics and Fleeces” for leather and fabric gloves respectively on the manufacturer’s website and costs $ 20.
