MACWORLD ’10 – Dots Gloves

It’s often said, “Cold Hands, Warm Heart.”  However, it’s also said, “Gloved hands, iPhone no worky.”  That’s because the moment you put on your winter mittens, your iPhone’s touchscreen no-longer senses your fingertips.  So, you’ve got to pull off the gloves every time you want to tap, flick or pinch.

Fortunately, Dots Gloves has found a way to keep your hands warm, while keeping your iPhone fully functional. The magic is in the material.  I put ’em on, and was able to use my iPhone’s touchscreen without any issues whatsoever.

I wish I had a pair of these last week when I was directing a late-night shoot on the beach.  I was freezing my.. um… hands off.  And I had to de-glove every time my iPhone rang.  That, my friends, sucked.   I haven’t tested these gloves in cold weather, but it’s on my list of things to do.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
