Invisible Shield by ZAGG Inc.

Invisible Shield

All right, I believe this will be my last CES 2008 related story. I mean, it really is getting kind of old.

Basically, one of my last experiences plays out like this: I was walking along, minding a lot of other booth’s business, when some representative from ZAGG Inc. shows me the Invisible Shield.

The Invisible Shield is essentially glorified cellophane tape, but it is designed to protect cell phones and other mobile devices, such as this iPod in the photo, from nicks and scratches.

How well does it work? Well, I admire the salesperson’s demonstration. He had a Tupperware container filled with screws, and he put his own phone in there. Then he shook it up for a while, and there was not a scratch on it.

I thought that was pretty impressive, so I asked them it can protect touch screens, such as the iPhone. They said it was perfect for it, and it was even good for removing smudges. All someone had to do was wipe the device coated with Invisible Shield on their sleeve, and it removes prints and smudges perfectly.

The Invisible Shield is all about being custom made, so you have to make certain that you have the right Invisible Shield for your device. If you want to remove it, there is no sticky residue.

I’m not certain how much this device costs or when it will be available, but it certainly is useful.

They’re available now at:

In fact, they just had a 50% sale earlier this week of which I was able to get the full body shield for my 80GB video iPod for $12.48 as well as some Applesauce Polish for $10.

BTW, I’m not affiliated with Zagg in anyone, just a long-time reader of your blog.

I figured that InvisibleSHEILD was worth the money so I went and bought, little did I know that it wasn’t as effective as they advertised it to be. Hard surfaces really had a profound effect on the product, which gave away to friction over a long period of time. I later on switch to the cheaper Gadgetsheildz which is a real “shield”
