They claim success ... but "less" success if you iPhone has a screen protector installed ...
But he said "iPhones and other smartphones and most GPS units are just too small to press at 120 kph or down bumpy trails" So pulling a special pen out of your tank bag won't be any easier in that case than pushing a small physical button. Also if they claim "less success" with these conductive materials, I wonder how do they work with that water and bomb proof iPad case?
