Iphone Sausage Stylus

Too cold to take off your gloves but desperate to play a round of Tapulous? Here’s a solution that’s taken South Korean iPhone-lovers by storm: use a sausage on your iPhone instead.

South Koreans are tackling the problem of numb fingers–brought on by using touchscreen phones in the winter time–with snack meat (see photos and video below).

The weight and texture of these convenience store sausages makes them a handy and effective ‘Sausage Stylus.’

According to Clusterfock (via what is believed to be a legitimate Korean-language news site), ‘sales of a snack sausage increase by almost 40%* in the winter as iPhone users utilize the sausage as a stylus in order to avoid removing their gloves.’ (read an auto-translated version of the article.)

Check out the iPhone ‘sausage stylus’ in action!
