Water Proof

Waterbuoy keeps your stuff from sinking

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. At a full kilogram, you could almost use this thing to catch fish depending on how big they were.


SeaLife ECOshot is useable anywhere

This new digi cam from SeaLife isn’t just for underwater use, it will work on land as well and is good for up to a six foot drop. It has a 6MP CMOS sensor and rubberized grips which helps all the way around.


CES 2008: Underwater Technology Center’s UDI allows text messaging underwater

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.


Waterproof phones could become common practice thanks to P2i’s Ion Mask

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.


Liquid Image underwater camera built into goggles

So these underwater goggles have a digital camera built in. When they release in January at CES, you’ll have your choice of 3.1 or 5 megapixels.


TearDrop speaker allows you to take your iPod with into the shower

I suppose you could use it just about anywhere it might get wet, but won’t get submerged. You can fit any small MP3 player in it, as long as its smaller than 2.55×4.17x.78 inches in size.


Luxurite’s wireless bathroom-friendly TV: waterproof & mirror-effect

If I’m in the bathroom and using the mirror it’s probably because I’m shaving, in which case for my own safety it’s really far better that I see myself rather than catching up on the breakfast news; however, smarthome designers simply love their mirror-finish TVs and so I suppose I should resign myself to aspirationally wanting one.  Latest on the block is the Luxurite Wireless Waterproof TV, which apparently is the first to combine a mirror-effect finish and fully water-resistant chassis.



NU Dolphin MP3 Player

Just this morning someone asked me if I wanted a waterproof bag for my MP3 player, I said no, that I had no use for it, they asked me if I ever took my Touch in the shower with me, and I laughed and said no. I really didn’t think that people actually had any interest in taking their music in the water with them.

Apparently they do though, as the NU Dolphin is 1GB worth of MP3 player and is made to go underwater with you. A charge will last you 8 hours of underwater goodness.


JVC XA-AW33 floating audio player

JVC has been showing off its new XA-AW33 floating audio player at CEATEC 2007. Just imagine one of those floating chlorine tablet things, but sealed off and with media controls on the top and you pretty much have got a good image what this thing looks like.

There is some sort of special speaker in this thing from NXT which is a UK tech company. I can’t see a speaker on top, or on the bottom, so I am going to assume it is the gap that makes a ring around the devices top half.


Techvision W104 water proof LCD TV for your bath or pool

Really you could stick it anywhere, but why buy a waterproof LCD unless you are going to put it somewhere you’d be worried about it getting wet? It has a Sharp 10.4” LCD built into it.

There is also a pair of speakers built in for stereo sound. There is even a waterproof remote control.


DVD Zabady is a splash proof portable DVD player

You can’t quite take it in the pool with you, but leaving it setting on the edge you should be fine. There is obviously a LCD screen on the device, it also plays DVDs.

The device will also read MP3s and MPEG4s off of discs. On top of that there is a SD card slot that will play the same formats from it.


CEDIA 2007 – Video Demo of Terra’s weatherproof AC Series Speakers

Vincent was so impressed by Terra’s AC Series Speakers that he couldn’t help but shoot some exclusive SlashGear footage of them in action.  Check out the all-enclosed, weatherproof range in the video after the cut!
