Tech touchdown

Use Digits on any pair of gloves—except for, perhaps, baseball gloves—to make them touchscreen friendly.

Four per pack

Unless you're ambidextrous, you can use them to transform two sets of gloves or give a couple Digits to a friend.

Invented By

Brian Shy

Chicago, IL

Like all Quirky products, Digits were invented and influenced by real people like you. Midwest winters have bite. It's no wonder that while Brian Shy was studying medicine in Chicago, he started sewing conductive thread into his gloves, prototyping what is now Digits. Brian is inspired by scientist Norman Borlaug, who developed agricultural techniques that saved about a billion lives from starvation. Fun fact: Brian and his fiancée Kim met delivering pizzas at Michigan State.

378 influencers helped bring Digits to life.
