The TAT7 Case Lets Your iPhone Go Underwater to Take Pictures
Underwater cameras are not always as good as advertised. Just ask my brother, who might have (read: definitely) ruined his camera when we were in the Caribbean last fall.
I told him not to throw it off that cliff! As more and more people migrate from digital cameras to the upgraded camera on their iPhones (source: me), there is a market for an underwater camera case for the iPhone. Now, thanks to the new TAT7, you have an option to take photos and videos at up to 100 feet underwater (via Crave). Apple will now find a way to sell iPhones to octopuses octopi (I just wanted an excuse to write octopi).
The TAT7 has 3 buttons that let you 1) take a picture/video 2) switch between picture or video mode and 3) hit the iPhone home button. You can’t swipe the screen, so no texting to your scuba instructor “Where the hell are you?!”
Just make sure that you don’t have your phone auto-locked, or else you can’t really access anything. Also, make sure you turn off any alarms you might have (“Return to surface”). As my brother found out the hard way, if something goes wrong and your iPhone gets ruined, the case maker is not responsible.
