One thing that never mixes well with any electronic devices is water. Unless they have been coated with a barrier film, unfortunately though the barrier film is still under development and might not protect your iPhone at depths of up to 100ft. Thats were a new Kickstarter project comes in called the FourPro.
The FourPro case has been designed to enable you to take your iPhone beneath the waves, and capture high resolution video and photographs. The FourPro system has been designed and field tested by the Emmy award-winning National Geographic underwater videographer, Ken Corben. Watch the video after the break to see the FourPro in action and the development team behind its creation.
“Our dive housing will allow anyone with an iPhone 4 or 4s to capture these precious and incredible moments that would otherwise be economically out of reach for this quality of HD video underwater. The alternatives to capture HD video at any depth below a kitchen sink run thousands to tens of thousands of dollars! Ken knows, he does it for a living. You can achieve the same results Hollywood spends millions to produce in the palm of your hand.”
If the FourPro makes the jump from concept to production the MSRP will be $699 which includes housing, lanyard, Teak handles and a custom hard case. However if you make a pledge the Kickstarter price is $399 for early adopters.
