New Invention Makes iPads and iPhones Waterproof

If you like to read your iPad in the bathtub, or take your iPhone to the beach, you’ll want to take a look at this new invention from Seal Shield. Seal Shields are an antimicrobial waterproofing solution for the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad.

These form-fitting, polyurethane covers are 100% waterproof, washable, and disinfectable, which is great not only for casual use, but also for use in hospitals and schools where germs are easily spread.

Did you know that your cell phone is covered with 18 times more bacteria than a toilet handle? Gross, right? Well, with the Seal Shield, you’ll be able to wash your phone along with your hands. Have a child who likes to grab your iPad with sticky, jelly-covered fingers? No problem, toss it right in the sink with a bit of soapy water, and it’s clean as the day you got it.

Unlike other waterproofing solutions, Seal Shields are completely invisible, so you can preserve the original design of your device and have unfettered access to the touch screen. They were originally developed for use in healthcare, so they’re perfect for all kinds of situations. You can even use a device in a Seal Shield to take under water pictures!

Pretty cool. I’m hoping to snag one of these so I can read on my iPad in the bathtub. If you want to get one of your own, you can get one for $19.99 at major retailers and distributors of iDevice accessories.

    $19.99 will get you one big enough for an iPhone. Want one for an iPad? Fork over $29.99!

    That would be nice, but I highly doubt it. Most waterproofing stuff is at your own risk.
