Freehands--gloves that love your handsets

The parts of the gloves covering the index fingers and thumbs can be folded back so your flesh can make contact with a touch screen or buttons.

Cold weather isn't something all of us have to contend with. But if you're a business traveler who has to journey to the northern hemisphere near the end of the year, the Freehands gloves could be the ticket to keeping your hands warm while still allowing you to use your tech gadgets.

Created by Josh Rubin, the founder of design/technology blog CoolHunting, these gloves let you operate your iPhone or BlackBerry without you having to remove them. The parts of the gloves covering the index fingers and thumbs can be folded back so your flesh can make contact with a touch screen or buttons. The really clever thing is that the ends of the gloves are held down by magnets, so nothing flaps around while you are typing a message or dialing a number.

The Freehands come in leather, spandex, and fleece costing $40, $30, and $20, respectively. There are five sizes, ranging from extra small to extra large, and you can have one in any color--as long as it's black. Visit the official site if you want to preorder a pair.
