Fun With Thanko: The USB Underwater Digital Camera
Oh Thanko…have I told you lately that I love you…r insane brand of gadget lunacy?
The boys and girls out at Thanko have truly done it again. They’re offering up a waterproof USB camera that will remain waterproof up to 20 meters deep, which is approximately sixty feet.
It’s got four gigs of onboard memory, USB, stores files in AVI at 736X280 resolution at 20 frames per second. Even better, the battery takes up to two full hours of nonstop running to go blank, so you’ll have plenty of time to learn all its various features.
But yes, you read that right…they’re actually offering up a waterproof diving USB camera. I admit there are plenty of other possible uses for it, but the fact that you can actually use it as a diving camera strikes me as a bit outlandish. But if you ever wanted to hunt gold in the Caribbean, and don’t mind shelling out a hundred and forty bucks worth of that gold in advance, this has GOT to be the way to do it.
