Default Glove for touchscreen stylus artists

Interesting idea. A partial glove that allows you to rest your hand on a touch screen while leaving your thumb, index, and middle fingers ungloved for easier use of the stylus.

I am not vouching for this, just sharing it as a possibility.

That's somewhat interesting although I think perhaps (regular) fingerless gloves might work just as well--they certainly look less odd but then, perhaps "odd" is the reason for wearing? '-}}


I'd not heard of them before--it's a Chinese company--and the pricing on their tablets is inexpensive and their monitors look interesting. They could perhaps use someone who writes a bit better in English. Lastly...I didn't see anything that indicates they make a left-handed one since not everyone is right-handed...'-}}

Not if you like to rest your ring and pinkie fingers on the tablet to stabilize your hand

But...only the right hand with their glove...'-}}


They make fingerless gloves for archival work--they usually are thin-ish cotton so they wouldn't get in the way of your resting fingers...'-}}

But would leave your fingerprints all over the archival materials you're trying to protect?

Sign me,

Confused

Yes! You would...and I mentally conflated two different streams of thought and my (ridiculous) comment was the result...'-}}


What I was trying to get at was that gloves of the type where all finger tips are exposed (vs. the glove from Parblo) come in non-bulky fabrics--a lot of people think of fingerless winter gloves made of wool/wool-blends. The non-bulky fabric thought led to a mental image of those (usually) white archival gloves and then I mentally conflated that with fingerless...


How's that for an explanation??? '-}}

Best tap-dancing I've seen in quite a while! Love the ruby slippers, too!

I've been trying to figure out a way to thread-drift over to the practice of wearing one glove to control focal dystonia, but I cannot.
