Liquid Image Scuba Mask Digital Camera
by Mark R
If you’re hoping to go to CES 2008, which I’m planning to, you should be able to see the Digital Underwater Camera Mask. This scuba mask/camera, manufactured by Liquid Image, allows the user to take images underwater. Perhaps Liquid Image will have a fish tank at CES to prove that it works.
The camera is available in 3.1 and 5.0 megapixels. To take a picture, all you need to do is line up the crosshair marks on the mask and then press a capture button. I can only assume the capture button is on the side somewhere. There are LED lights on the outside so you can see that a picture was taken.
After a picture is taken, you can then download the picture via USB to your personal computer or laptop. You have 16MB of memory plus a microSD slot for additional storage. I can only assume that the microSD has some sort of waterproof cover thing.
This will definitely liven up your summer pool pictures. I usually like to take a few with a disposable waterproof camera, but results are mediocre at best.
The rumor has it that the Liquid Image Mask will go for about $99. I guess we’ll see after CES.
