Impromtu Stylus

Lifehacker has quickly become one of my favorite blogs! They always have great ideas, and some of their ways to to things are just ingenious. Recently they had a few ideas on alternative access for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

First, how to use your iPhone/iPod Touch in the winter with gloves on - Conductive Thread. It seems like a very simple hack to sew in some thread so you don't have to take off your gloves to use your device.

They also showed that the flat end of a small battery can be used to access your device - Battery. I can see this being used to help some students access a iPhone or iPod Touch. Attaching a short stick to the end would even make a quick, easy stylus. There are styluses available for purchase, one being the Pogo, but if you need something quick, try out this idea.

Any other ways you have to access touch devices? Leave a comment below!
