Waterproof iPhone Case Is So Thin You Can Use Another Case On Top Of It

Well, this is flat out amazing. Most waterproof cases for phones are bulky monstrosities that make it really difficult to use the device it's protecting. Not the Case Marine. At just 0.25mm thick, you can actually use it with another case on top.

Made of polyurethane with a clear acrylic panel that covers the phone's display, the Case Marine can be installed on an iPhone 4 or a Galaxy S2 in less than five seconds, protecting it from water to a depth of over 10m. And the touchscreen is still completely accessible and usable while the phone's inside.

Seemingly only available in Japan at the moment, the lite version of the Case Marine sells for just $US15, while a premium version, which appears to cover more of the phone's back panel including the camera lens, is $US38. An iPad version is coming soon for $US50 that promises to let you keep using your tablet during baths, showers, downpours, and even light scuba-diving. [DigInfo TV]

    Where to buy this?

      What about the hype last year about "superhydrophobic" coatings proposed for in-manufacture or have the manufacturers decided that's a bad idea?

    Because bits of steam can be really tiny you need a cover that can protect to a depth of something like 25m if you want to use your device under a hot shower.

    Just what my GF and I have been looking for - something to record our 'sessions' in the steamy shower

      Sounds good for you! though i wouldn't bother with a 32gb model though.

      I did some calculations for you.

      An 8gb iDevicegives you roughly 6.7gb of usable space

      an hour of hd recording is about 900mb

      so 6.7 x 1024 gives you the total in megabytes = 6860.8mb Right? Right! so lets move on!

      6860.8/900 = 7.623 Hours of hd recording

      7.623 x 60 = 457.39 minutes of hd recording.

      457.39 x 60= 27,443 seconds of HD recording

      27,443 / 2 (amount of seconds your average session takes)= 13,721 sessions; there abouts anyway.

      assuming you have sex say i dunno, twice a day? 13,721 / 2 = 6861 days of sex

      should last you for just under 19 years... flash memory should be cheaper by then!

      I spent way too much time on this... o_O
