InDepth: One way to make Apple iPhones tough

InDepth cases can make your iPhone water proof and resistant to screen-shattering drops

Tough phones are rarely good phones, and popping an ordinary case on an iPhone doesn’t always cut it for most tradies and extreme sports enthusiasts.

Born from this dilemma is a new product called InDepth cases. The range combines a variety of exotic materials in an effort to give iPhones a chance against the elements, both on land and in water. These materials include glass-filled polycarbonate, thermal polymer elastomer, anodized alloy clips and silicone seals.

A point of vulnerability for most smartphones is the glass touch screen. InDepth cases do cover the screen with an anti-scratch protector, but iPhones can still recognise touch selections. The speakers and the grille are clad in “waterproof acoustic vents”, which make it possible to use your iPhone underwater.

iPhones with an InDepth case can withstand waters up to two metres deep for a period of thirty minutes. They can also handle drops from a height of two metres.

Knowing your smartphone can handle a good knock is a nice comfort, but not dropping your smartphone in the first place is even better. For better grip, InDepth cases are covered in what the company describes as “a soft grip overmould”.

The cases support a range of custom-built accessories, and part of the bundle is a belt clip that doubles as a bottle opener.

InDepth cases are available for Apple’s iPhone 5/5s and 4/4s in a range of colours, with pricing set at $99.95 and $89.95 respectively.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
