Laser Smart Sleeves are fancy zip lock bags for your smartphone and tablet
Australian-owned gadget brand Laser is rolling out a line of "smart sleeves" designed to protect smartphones and tablets from the elements. While the sleeves themselves are glorified zip lock bags, they've are available in four sizes different device sizes and don't inhibit touch sensitivity. They will however prevent the use of fingerprint readers.
"Australians love technology almost as much as they love being oudoors," said Laser Marketing Executive Monika Centrone. "Combining these passions often meant a soggy and expensive end as smartphones and tablets were ruined by water, sand, dirt or grease. Now with these simple to use and inexpensive smart sleeves your technology can stay clean and dry in almost any conditions".
Laser sees smartphone and tablet owners bagging their devices going to the beach, fishing, boating, cooking, painting, or in the rain.
Laser's smart sleeve range is now available from Big W, Officeworks and selected retailers. A 10 pack of smartphone sleeves retails for AUD$12.95, while a five pack of tablet sleeves is priced at AUD$15.95. Smartphone and tablet sleeves are both available in a choice of medium or large.
