iPhone goes for an 82 day swim, survives to tell the tale
Dave likes to mount his iPhone 4 to his kayak to record some of the action and this day was no different. To protect his device, Dave used an Optrix case. Optrix makes a wide array of waterproof and high-activity minded cases that also cater to those that want to take video and pictures of their adventures.
Back to Dave’s iPhone’s story, Dave is riding a wave and gets turned over. While righting himself, his oar hits the camera mount and down goes the iPhone into the depths of the ocean. The iPhone continues to record video until the battery dies and then the device spends another 82 days in the water.
When it washes up on shore, a good Samaritan finds it, charges it up, turns it on, and called Dave’s dad. The iPhone and Dave were happily reunited and the video tells the tale. Dave plans to keep video recording his kayaking exploits, “I just need to hold onto it.”
Thanks Zack for the heads-up.
