Answer:

These mini sausages are used by Koreans in winter as an iPhone stylus to avoid taking their gloves off. These things have electrostatic similarities with the human finger.

    Has electrostatic properties close to that of the human finger, hence can be used as a stylus for touchscreen devices while the hands stay warm in gloves.

    Nice one.

    Assuming that what you’ve obscured is an iPhone with a capacitive touchscreen, I guess it’d be used as a stylus so you can keep your gloves on. But the person in this pic isn’t wearing gloves so maybe I’m all wrong.

    Sales of CJ Corporation’s snack sausages are on the increase in South Korea because of the cold weather; they are useful as a meat stylus for those who don’t want to take off their gloves to use their iPhones.

    Super question.

    Sausage stylus for iPhones, because it’s too cold to remove the gloves.
    Some even use two, as drumsticks :)

    Korean iPhone users are driving a 40% increase in snack sausage sales because they’ve figured out the little meat sticks can be used as an iPhone stylus in winter

    Apple and HTC might each be trying to patent a fancy capacitive stylus, but it looks like the good people of South Korea have stumbled on a decidedly more low-tech (and delicious) solution to using their phones in the winter: sausages. Apparently snack sausages from the CJ Corporation are electrostatically compatible with the iPhone’s capacitive touchscreen, leading many to use them as a “meat stylus” in the cold weather, rather than remove a glove. And it’s not just a joke; apparently South Korean snack sausage sales are soaring

    These sausages made by CJ Corporation in Korea double up as a IPhone stylus. They are particularly useful in the winter season when ppl dont want to take off their gloves to operate their IPhone.
