Waterproof Your iPhone With This Amazing Japanese ‘Condom’



Forget nano-coatings that render the individual components oin your iPhone waterproof. And forget bulky underwater cases that make your svelte phone look like something Nokia put out ten years ago. What you need for total iPhone protection is this amazing Japanese condom.

It’s called the Case Marine, and is a skintight drysuit for the iPhone 4/S. The stretchy skin is made from coated polyurethane, and the screen cover is acrylic. And as our friend Andrew Liszewski over at Gizmodo points out, it’s thin enough to be used with another case on top: 0.25mm — or 0.0008 feet — thick.

Even though it just stretches over the phone, it apparently stays truly waterproof down to ten meters, or 394 inches. That’s easily enough to protect it from the rigors of the beach, or a quick (hopefully accidental) dunk in the toilet.

And soon, an iPad case will follow.

The Gooma Case will cost ¥3,000 ($37).
