iPhones, for all their glorious, touch-screeny goodness, are fragile little things -- it hangs up on your mom if you hold it in your left hand, data speeds are spotty with some carriers, and the screen cracks easier than a jailhouse snitch with an upcoming parole hearing. But for all you folks who wrecked your iPhone in the rain or the bathtub or the Mariana Trench, there's a way to keep it from happening again.
Sunrise-based Concord Keystone company recently released the ECO MarineCase, which it says will let you bring your iPhone as deep as 20 feet underwater. We had no reason to believe the company, and the only review on Amazon
is negative. But it's got a sea turtle as proof.
In a video posted by the company earlier this month, you can see the little thing swimming around underwater, in footage it says was taken by an iPhone. If you want to try it out yourself, it's 40 bucks from Amazon
or direct from the company
. Though be warned about the wait time -- over the past few weeks, the shipping time from Amazon has jumped back and forth, with estimates ranging from two weeks to two months. But don't jump in the turtle tank without it.
