電子ブックリーダーや iPadのアクセサリを扱う M-Edgeから、アマゾン Kindle 用の防水ケース Guardian Case が発表されました。ポリカーボネート製のハウジングとデュアルヒンジ・4点ラッチ・Oリングで Kindleを密閉保護することにより、プールでも海でもお風呂でも読書を可能にします。

対応するのは6インチの現行世代 Kindle (Kindle 2)。左右のページ送りボタンとキーボード部の窓には柔軟な素材が使われておりそのまま操作できます。防水性能は水深 1mまでとあって海底読書には使えないものの、ケース内部に設けられた空気室で浮くようになっているため、落としてもプールの底まで拾いに潜る必要はありません。(メーカーの宣伝文句は「水面に平らに浮くのでハンズフリー読書が可能」。いやいやいや。)

紙本を2冊買ってひとつをお風呂・プール用にしたり、一章分をコピーして持ち込むような種類の人にとっては、Kindleを濡れても(水に) 落としても良い読書端末にする便利な製品です。iPad や一般的な透過型液晶採用のデバイスと違い、明るい日光の下でも (では) 見やすい反射型ディスプレイのKindleに向いた使い方でもあります。リンク先のメーカーオンラインストアでは赤・青・黒の3色それぞれUS$79.99 で販売中。価格はなかなか強気です。


M-Edge Launches Waterproof 'Guardian Case' for Amazon Kindle

The world's first fully waterproof, floating case set to revolutionize the e-reading experience


ODENTON, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--M-Edge Accessories, the leading provider of e-reader accessories, today released their latest groundbreaking accessory for Amazon Kindle-the Guardian Case. The Guardian is the world's first fully waterproof, floating case for Kindle.

"They can read in places they wouldn't dare bring a book, but always wanted to. The Guardian Case provides the solution and is an excellent example of how M-Edge is committed to delivering problem-solving and innovative accessories that meet the needs of readers, no matter where they choose to read."

Made of molded plastic, the Guardian safeguards the device in all water environments up to 1 meter deep, from the bathtub to the pool to the ocean. The Guardian Case allows for full functionality of Kindle's navigation buttons and keyboard through flexible sealed button cutouts. Users can even read hands-free in the water, because the Guardian floats on the surface.

"The Guardian is certain to revolutionize the way Kindle owners read. Now, not only can people read by the water without fear, they can read in the water, on the water, and under the water-to one meter anyhow," says Patrick Mish, CEO of M-Edge Accessories. "They can read in places they wouldn't dare bring a book, but always wanted to. The Guardian Case provides the solution and is an excellent example of how M-Edge is committed to delivering problem-solving and innovative accessories that meet the needs of readers, no matter where they choose to read."

The Guardian keeps a secure, watertight seal around Kindle by utilizing a dual-hinge, integrated gasket and four-latch closure system. Three internal buoyancy chambers provide distributed flotation to keep Kindle afloat for in-water reading. An anti-reflective film protects the Guardian's screen area while allowing for uninhibited reading in sunny environments. Made of transparent polycarbonate, the Guardian's hard shell exterior provides impact protection while the custom molded interior and soft mounting pads provide gentle support for the device.

The Guardian comes in three colors-black, red, and cobalt blue-and is available for $79.99 on medgestore.com and Amazon.com. The case has been featured in such publications as Maxim, People StyleWatch, Forbes, and Wired.
