Drop your gadgets much? Spill liquid on your electronics as of recent? In that case it’s probably a good idea to invest in the Lacie Tank.

It’s an IP-63-certified case that can protect your goods from drops, dings and spilled liquids. While it’s largely aimed at those who transport an external 2.5-inch portable hard drive, it can also fit a Nintendo DS/i and other comparably sized products, such as a digital camera. LaCie includes a few pieces of removable foam to remove or add padding accordingly to the size of your gadget.

They suggest that it can be used for snail mailing sensitive products, but at £19.99 ($31 US) we’d have to disagree.

Right now the Tank appears to be available only from their UK site, but hang tight, it should hit the US soon.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
