With the increased market for touchscreen devices, conductive gloves have great potential to become a major winter item, but there is lack of research about conductive gloves for touchscreen devices. The purposes of this research were: (a) to identify important design factors for conductive glove designs; (b) to develop conductive gloves for touchscreen devices considering user behaviours and design factors; and (c) to develop design and evaluation processes and methods for conductive gloves. Market research, an online survey, and a user test were conducted and identified key design factors and preferences and expectations on conductive gloves. The results of this research will benefit clothing designers as they develop conductive gloves and may be useful for retailers and marketers who promote these conductive gloves by highlighting the appealing and important factors of these gloves.
