world’s slimmest waterproof 3G Cellphone
The F705i is the world’s slimmest, waterproof 3G cellphone at 13.7mm thick. The Fujitsu handset can survive in up to 1-meter of water submersion for 30 minutes.

The F705i features Super Clear Voice and Super Clear Mike technology, therefore it automatically adjusts volume settings in response to ambient noise levels. It will also feature a 1.3MP camera with Quick Zoom functionality, allowing users to increase and decrease on-screen text size with a single button. The F705i is 106×49×13.7mm tall, weighs in at 111g and will give you 170-minute of talk time, or 100-minutes of video calling, all on a single charge. No one is sure yet if we will see this in the States, but if you plan on spending a lot of time underwater it might be worth tracking one down.

Posted in Science,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on December 31st, 2007

Ion-mask technology used to waterproof gadgetsAnytime waterproofing is added to a gadget it just seems to make it that much more cool, but unfortunately not many electronic devices are able to live through being accidentally dropped into your Mai Tai or withstand a simple vodka resistance test because the the difficulty and expense of making small seals for all those cracks and crevices.

Well, thanks to some scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory in Porton Down, Wilts. who originally developed the technology, gadgets may soon be getting something called an Ion-Mask coating to provide waterproofing to all sorts of devices. The Ion-Mask was a military technology originally designed to protect soldiers clothing from chemical attacks but soon could be used to protect mobile phones and media players from moisture, rain and the occasional drop in the drink.

iPod waterproof music in a tube

Music Tube waterproof iPod speaker dockThis iPod speaker dock from Taiwan’s Nova has a transparent, waterproof covering that looks like a tube of some sort of lotion or gel, complete with a whole in the end where it would hang on display at the store. The idea is to provide a waterproof speaker system for your iPod that lets you bring it into the shower. It also looks like you might even be able to control the iPod through the case but in reality to us it looks like just a cheap way to try to make a waterproof dock.

Rugged hands-on with the Casio G’zOne Type-S

Posted in Casio,Mobile Phones,Outdoors,Review,Verizon,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on September 30th, 2007

Casio G’zOne Type-S is a rugged mobile phone that can take wet, shock and outdoor exposureThis past June we wrote about Casio’s tough G’zOne Type-S mobile phone when it was released and we recently got a chance to get our hands on one to see just how tough this thing really was and what “water resistant” really meant. What we found is that the G’zOne Type-S lives up to its hype on standing against the elements and also had some nice surprises we were not expecting.

Moonlight Spa Music SystemUnless you are using a waterproof case taking your iPod into your spa is probably not a smart idea. Hot Spring Spas believes it has a solution for you though by unveiling its Moonlight Spa Music System.

The Moonlight Spa Music System, which includes an iPod docking station, wirelessly transmits music from any audio source to four weatherproof speakers which surround you as you make sweet love in the spa. You can control tracks on the iPod and adjust audio volume with a floating, waterproof remote control. This remote also lets you control most electronic spa features while in the water.

Waterproof mDrive Flash Drive from Gidis

Posted in Flash Memory,USB,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on September 3rd, 2007

Waterproof Mdrive USB flash drive from GidisWaterproof electronic devices just always seem kind of cool for some reason. Anytime you can take some electronic gadget under water and it still works, even when there is no need, automatically moves it up the “cool” list a few points.

A good example is the mDrive waterproof USB Flash drive from Gidis. The slim drive comes packaged in a CD jewel case with a smooth looking black and red Taegeuk design, but what’s most noteworthy is that its waterproof. We’re not sure just how many things you’re going to be able to actually plug this thing into when your under water but when a device comes along with a functional, underwater USB port, Gidis will be ready. Then again, this of course could be handy right after you’ve downloaded the secret documents onto it while on your secret spy reconnaissance mission, and then have to dive into the ocean in a narrow escape.

Iron tough drive

Posted in Flash Memory,USB,Waterproof by Chetz on September 1st, 2007

Ironkey USB ThumbdriveIf you are looking for the ultimate in security for a new thumb drive take a gander at the IronKey, the military’s solution to keeping their secrets safe. The IronKey is made to be both tough physically as well as data attacks.

For starters it encrypts your password using 256-bit AES and then encrypts that info a second time using 128-bit encryption. It may sound like overkill but heck why not do it? If a hacker wants to try and guess your password they only get 10 tries before the IronKey destroys all of the data it contains. If the villain tries to pop the drive open and get at the chips inside he will have a next-to-impossible task pulling it out in one piece since the guts are coated with an epoxy and would gum up the removal process.

Aquapod splash proof ipod or other MP3 player speaker and caseThis splash-proof speaker/case provides a dry sanctuary for your media player allowing you to listen to it in places that aren’t so dry such as at a pool, in the shower or in the rain.

Posted in Outdoors,Two-way Radios,Waterproof by Darrin Olson on August 22nd, 2007

Life vest with built-in two way radioIt’s probably tough for anyone to hang onto a two way radio when your out skiing in a lake or accidentally falling off a boat at sea, but it sure would be handy to have one sometimes. This life vest from Hammacher Schlemmer comes with two, 2-way radios; one of them integrated into the vest.

The radios span 14 channels and cover a distance of 1.8 miles to allow the wearer of the life vest to communicate with the person on the other end, (who is hopefully not also in the water) without the worry of dropping the radio. They’re water resistant up to 3 feet down and are powered by 3 AAA batteries.

The life vest itself is U.S. Coast Guard approved and is made from a 100% PVC interior covered by neoprene (the same stuff wetsuits are made of). The …

Posted in Radio,Shower,Simpsons,Waterproof by Darrin Olson on August 20th, 2007

Homer Simpson shower radioWhat, you ask, could be better than a radio shaped like Homer Simpson’s head? It would have to be a shower radio shaped like Homer Simpson’s head, no less. What’s also better about this model is that it’s a talking Homer Simpson radio that will say one of six shower-related phrases when you press his ear. So now you can have Homer with you in the shower, too. How cool is that?!?

Homer’s right eye controls tuning in the AM or FM stations and the left controls the volume with the speaker appropriately at his mouth. With a hook to hang over the shower head the Homer radio is of course water resistant and is powered by three AAA batteries. retailing for $39.95.
