Water Proof

PROVIEW launch splash-proof LCD TV

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.


Waterproof Scuba MP3 Player

This unit has an iRiver iFP-380T MP3 player at its core then adds in a waterproof case for that as well as a waterproof amp and set of underwater headphones to complete the underwater aural excursion. The headphones come with clips that allow them to attach the strap on your goggles.


SoakTV is a waterproof wireless TV

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.


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.
