Over the past four winters, we've tested more than 30 pairs of touchscreen gloves while moving half a ton of tree stumps, ice climbing, standing in a walk-in fridge for nearly three hours, and simply walking and biking around town. The Moshi Digits are easy to type with and should keep most people's fingers toasty, though we also have picks for more extreme climates since using touchscreen gloves involves a trade-off between manoeuvrability and warmth.

Lobsters never took over the world because their claws are terrible at grasping. It's the same reason deep sea divers, especially those that venture so far down that they require Atmospheric Dive Suits to keep from imploding, have such difficulty manipulating their tools at depth — the suits' conventional lobster-like "prehensor" grippers are complete rubbish. But these new robo-gloves from MIT startup Vishwa Robotics will offer divers superior, Ninja Turtle-esque grip even 20,000 leagues below the sea.
