Lacie Tank Protects Anything That You Can Cram in It
December 10th, 2010
I have what it technically referred to as a crap-ton of gadgets and gizmos. The thing with most of this stuff is that it is so fragile that I know one drop or splash of water will kill it. With that in mind, I constantly threaten to ground my kids forever if they get around my gear with drinks and I typically leave my stuff at home.
LaCie has a new storage box that will turn your non-rugged gadgets into rugged gear that you can at least take with you when you go places. The box is called the LaCie Tank and it measures in at 1.6″ x 4.8″ x 7.3″ and weighs 9 ounces. The thing has a foam interior that you can customize to fit the gadget you want to cram in it.
According to LaCie, the Tank will hold a 2.5-inch HDD, Nintendo DS, digital camera and all sorts of other things. It is IP-63 rated for dust and water protection and meets military standards for shock and drop resistance. You can pick up the Tank for £19.99 (appx. $32 US).
