Swipe (to unlock) your iPhone with your nose

I live in the northeast and we're getting hit with a ton of snow today. We're all wearing gloves. If your smartphone has a capacitive touch screen, then you can't swipe to unlock your phone if you're wearing typical gloves (they make special gloves that work with the iPhone, but most people don't wear these types of gloves). So, what do you do when your iPhone (or other smartphone) is ringing and you're wearing gloves? Swipe to unlock your phone using your nose.

That's right. Swipe your iPhone with your nose. Don't be shy. Try it and you'll like it.

If you never wear gloves, you're missing out on a great way to unlock your iPhone.  Thanks to my friend Lei who provided me with this tip.

  1. You can also sew conductive thread into the finger tip to transmit the current from your finger tip to outside the glove.
