Versatility and convenience are all the rage when we look for electronic technology that we could integrate into our sports or athletic routines, for example; like waterproofed radios and gadgets, camera’s, and those most sought after cell phones. Putting the cell phone in rice to absorb water is not really the ideal fix for the technology that is not waterproof and you need to absorb the water quick before it is totally damaged beyond repair. So what is waterproofing? It is a method of coating the electronic device that makes it water-resistant or water-repellant. This is very new and innovative technology called, “Nano-technology” where sealant techniques are wafer thin and provide Nano-coating for electronics like tablets, phones, IPods, and digital cameras. People for the good majority of the times want a product to last and they could engage with in their everyday lives and are sealed and waterproofed and work when we perform sporting tasks and sweat during our sporting exchanges.

The newest and most recent invention is the IPod Shuffle that is waterproofed and it costs between $125- $165 for a waterproofed IPod shuffle. The regular price is $49 without the waterproofing. Many people like to relax and take a swim in the ocean, pool, or recreational parks, so this IPod shuffle is ideal for the event of splashing around in water. In this day and age we do live more active lifestyles and it is an extra treat to take along some music to make it even more interesting. The changes in the waterproofing of the shuffle are extended to its attachments with waterproofed earplugs and accessories are available at an extra cost.

We take a fast forward seat to innovative technology when we experience the newest phones that are water-resistant, shock-resistant, and dust-resistant. This phone the Casio G’zone Type S has many capabilities. Some of them include the capabilities of maintaining of Bluetooth capability, GPS, speakerphone, photo cam, video cam, and lantern. This phone is available from Verizon Wireless for about $150.

Then there are cameras like the Olympus Stylus 770 SW for $380 from Olympusamerica that is Shockproof from almost 5 feet you can really enjoy this camera on the most taxing and grueling athletic adventures like camping, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, and white-water rafting among some of the most extreme sports. If, the still pictures do not suffice to do the trip or event justice then you have the alternative in using a waterproofed camcorder like the Sanyo Xacti E1 for $500 from Best Buy.

Among all of these waterproof gadgets is the GPS that is waterproofed and retains a signal by ground or aerial imagery that maintains its signals in the most unlikely places like mountainous regions to the deep forest trails, and long distance or remote areas. This gadget is called the DeLorme Earth mate GPS PN-20 (

Amazon also sells a Micro-fiber Soft storage pouch that you can utilize for glasses, phones, and other gadgets that are available in different colors in a 10 count water resistant drawstring pouch (

Gadgets are not the only thing that have gone water-resistant there is an automobile that looks like a sports coup called the SQuba that could submerge like a submarine and operate like a boat that is European made and is currently not available to the public
