After yesterday's TV ideal for your kitchen, today we continue our quest to put LCD screens around your home with a water-resistant set for the bathroom. Unlike that Westinghouse HDTV, though, the PROVIEW PA-15BA7 is standard definition. With a 15-inch screen, 450:1 contrast ratio and 120 degree x 100 degree viewing angle, it's not setting out to blow away your home cinema setup, but thanks to a waterproof remote and slash-resistant casing it's a lot happier mounted above the bath.
I’ve heard tale of those people who are so addicted to TV they have one in every room, including the bathroom, and I’m glad I’m not one of them. I’ve never had a show that was so important to me I couldn’t miss a second of it or wait until a rerun to catch what I missed. But for those of you who need to take it a step further and place your TV within the bathtub/shower itself there is the SoakTV.
This is nothing like the foam floaters that your local boat and/or bait shop used to pass out, no; this thing can keep up to a full kilogram afloat instead of the measly one or two keys of the foam key chains.

This nifty little arm mounted SMS device could be the thing that saves your life if you find yourself caught underwater with a lack of Oxygen or coming up too fast. Also, when it’s not being used to bring those capable to your rescue, you can just use it communicate with the rest of your team or with those on the ship you dropped in from.
So P2i has taken the technology the British defense department has been using to repel chemicals and gases from their soldiers uniforms and applied it to cell-phones to repel water from the high tech gadgets. Generally you had to add some size and girth to a mobile device to offer up waterproofing, whether it be from a special water-tight case or due to the seals being built into the actual phone itself.
