The Joy Factory is debuting the next generation of rugged specialty products including:
aXtion pro Rugged, Waterproof Case for iPad/iPad Mini and iPhone 5 - Building on the company's success of the company's waterproof cases for iOS devices, The Joy Factory has incorporated advanced waterproof and shockproof technology to protect the iPad, iPad mini and iPhone 5 in the most challenging environments. The case meets the highest qualification of IP68 waterproof standard, meaning that it can withstand continuous submersion in water. The durable case also meets the standard of military grade shockproof MIL-STD-810, helping to protect the iPad/iPhone 5 from accidental drops and guard against hazards in the harshest conditions for those that hit the slopes or work at hazardous construction sites.
All buttons on the iPad are fully accessible, creating new opportunities to transform the device into an underwater camera. The headphone jack is also accessible for waterproof headphones, allowing users to easily listen to music without having to remove the tablet from the case.
Should the iPad take an accidental fall into water, the aXtion pro case will float to the surface for easy retrieval. An optional floating accessory is available to add to the aXtion pro iPhone 5 case.
The aXtion Pro will be available in Q1-2013, starting at the MSRP of $149.95 for the iPad, $129.95 for iPad mini and $79.95 for the iPhone 5.
