Nanotips just wrapped up a very successful crowdfunding campaign, and now their conductive nano-particle paint is ready to turn your favorite cycling gloves into touchscreen friendly hand coverings.
Two versions are available, one for leather and thicker materials like rubber, and one for cloth fabrics. Simply paint it onto the first knuckle’s worth of glove, let it dry, and *boom* touchscreen compatibility. Each little bottle retails for $20 and will coat 20 to 30 fingers depending on material and version. Once dry, it’s washable and durable, and can be reapplied as needed.

Nanotips Blue is for porous fabrics and lasts a couple weeks per application. Nanotips Black is for thicker materials like leather and lasts a couple months before reapplication might be needed. Actual mileage may vary, we’re thinking if it’s on your brake lever finger it might wear a bit quicker.
The Blue version dries to a mostly-transparent blue shade that they say won’t discolor the fabric too much, but lighter colored textiles will be more obvious. They say it doesn’t change the feel or texture of the fabric, though.
Both versions are available for preorder and should ship around March 20, 2014.
