Look, I admit that sweaty thumbs aren’t even one of my top 10 concerns while gaming, but for those worried about thumb sweat wrecking your KDA in Fortnite or Call of Duty: Mobile (????), then Razer’s got you covered.


Razer calls them Gaming Finger Sleeves, but see the photo above and let’s let’s call these things what they really are: thumb condoms.

Razer says its $10 mobile gaming thumb condoms, which come in gray with neon green highlights and are made from a mix of nylon, spandex, and silver fiber fabric, are “woven with high-sensitivity silver fiber for enhanced aim and control,” while “our breathable sleeves keep your fingers deadly cool in the heat of battle.” I’m not sure whose fingers sweat profusely while playing Fortnite, but, OK!

Critically, unlike the kind of latex finger cots you might see at your doctor’s office or used by other medical professionals, Razer’s gaming condoms feature conductive silver fiber to ensure that your smartphone can still recognize your thumbs while also “reducing friction” and delivering “maximum accuracy.” It’s also important to note that although Razer claims its gaming condoms are compatible with “most mobile gaming devices,” there’s a chance the sleeves might not work right on your phone, or possibly might not be as useful on older gaming handhelds like a Nintendo 3DS, which relies on a resistive touchscreen instead of a more modern capacitive touch display.
