Often we have devices installed on our motorcycles that need to be "managed" while riding. GPS, music players, smartphones, XM radio, etc. It's not a good idea to do so when riding, but at times it can not be helped.

Many of these devices have touchscreens, and the problem is that often they will not work when you have gloves, especially thick motorcycle gloves.

Alice Ning invented a solution that will allow you to keep your motorcycle gloves (you can buy special touchscreen gloves, but they are expensive, and often not made for riding) and still use your touchscreen device. It's called TapCaps Open link in a new window, and in fact it's a small sticker/patch put on the finger of your gloves, in the shape of a fingerprint, that allows you to "touch" your device, fooling it into thinking you are touching it with a normal finger.

At this moment the device is a Kickstarter project, and you can back it up financially. There are the usual rewards for backing up a project like this, from US$1, which will earn you the inventor's thanks, to US$10,000, will have the "fingerprint" on the sticker be your fingerprint.

She's pretty far already in obtaining the financing to do the project (goal is US$15,000), but you'll need to give it the last push.
