The dream of every messy, lazy iPad lover has just come true. Now you can spill your latte, your lunch, or even your bath bubbles all over your iPad without frying it thanks to a new product from a company called Seal Shield.
The iPad Seal Shield contains an antimicrobial, fungistatic agent that inhibits the growth of microbial bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi on the iPad’s surface. Keeping your touchscreen products clean should be one of your highest priorities thanks to the percentage of devices that carry the dangerous bacteria E. Coli. According to a recent Stanford University study, mobile devices a are covered with an average of 18 times more bacteria than a toilet handle. Gross!
The Seal Shield not only protects your iPad from contamination. You can also submerge your iPad in the water thanks to the 100% waterproof seal. Unlike bulky cases, the Seal Shield is completely invisible, so you won’t feel like you are trying to watch a Netflix movie through a thick plastic cube should you decide to chill in the bathtub and watch a movie.
Seal Shield has been waterproofing a variety of devices including keyboards, mice, TV remote controls, and touch devices with its patent pending waterproof plastic technology since 2006.
Check out this video to see the Seal Shield in action. The beginning of the video is a little cheesy, but hold out for the :22 mark when a submerged iPhone makes an appearance.
