The next time you’re at the beach or pool and you’re concerned your phone will take a dive in the drink, there’s a very good chance you’ll want one of Laser’s latest gadgets.
Call it the most unexciting stocking stuffer, because that’s what it probably is, Aussie gadget and gadget accessory brand is tackling the plastic bag, grabbing the formula for what makes a sandwich bag work, amping it up, and bringing it to your phone.
That’s the general idea, anyway, with Laser’s “Smart Sleeve”, a name we think refers to your decision to use one rather than how it was made or how the sleeve functions.
Built to be a “one-time use” concept, the Smart Sleeve is literally a heavy plastic sandwich bag made for either phones or tablets, though because they come in two sizes, you’ll want to get the right one for your device.
Essentially, this is just a tough clear plastic sandwich bag designed to keep your phone safe from dirt, sand, and even water, though we’d test one with a bit of paper before going full hog in the pool if you really want to do that.
That’s not entirely a new concept, mind you, and we’ve seen these pop up time and time again in the past, though given how few devices sport water resistance, it’s a timely reminder of just how fragile the gadgets we keep with us are.
