Protecting gadgets at the beach & more

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Heading to the beach,  a boat or a hiking trail?  Protect those gadgets.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Sand and water are lots of fun in the summer, but they don’t play nicely with iPhones, iPads,  Kindles and digital cameras.   That’s why one of the hot new accessory categories are clear bags that let you protect your gadgets and continue to use them.   One of the companies making them is  called LokSak, where Jason Ihrig says…

“All of our bags are 100 percent water, air, sand and humidity proof.  They come in 18 different sizes.  These are all certified waterproof to 200 feet and all of your touch screen electronics work right through the bag.  So any touch screen item works just like it’s not in the bag.  You can make and receive phone calls.   The call clarity, the signal, stays the same.”

There’s more info at LokSak.com.    Pricing starts at about five dollars.   You can find us with a full archive of interviews, reports and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
