  2. To launch the iPad version of the IKEA-catalogue in Norway, we created a brand new IKEA product called "BERÖRA". It´s a sewing kit with a special conductive thread to sew into say the index finger of your favourite gloves. This little operation will make your gloves, mittens or whatever work on a touch-screen. Actually quite useful since it was in the middle of a freezing cold winter in Norway, when mittens should be kept on at all times...
