The iPad just got more useful: now you can take it in the bath

Aquapac, maker of waterproof cases for a number of electronic devices, has just announced its iPad case is available in Australia.

The Large Wanganui case is made of clear polyurethane that makes it easy to see the screen, and also allows full touch-control. The 100% waterproof case is submersible to 10m, and although not designed specifically for the iPad, fits it remarkably well. Experience actually using the iPad underwater may vary, as this video on YouTube shows running water operating the touchscreen.

So now you can read iBooks in the bath, or use Maps to find your way whilst walking on a rainy day. The bag also promises to float if you accidentally drop your iPad in the water, which could be great if you wanted to take it out on a boat – I wonder if there’s a fish finder app for iPad? It’s also dust and sand proof, potentially making it a good all-rounder for beach-goers.

The case is available from Next Destination for $55. Or you could try your luck with a big Glad bag, though I make no guarantee that this will be a successful approach to keeping your precious iPad safe.
