I’ve been playing around with ZAGG’s InvisibleSHIELD for the 2G iPod touch and after some initial misgivings, I have to say, I like the being able to show off the beauty of Apple’s iPod rather than hiding it behind a bulky protective case. When I use the typical cases, I often wonder why I’m protecting the iPod against scratches if I never let its beautiful design out to be seen? What special occasion am I saving it for?
The invisibleSHIELD is made from a durable adhesive film exclusive to ZAGG. The company claims that it is the thinnest protective skin of its kind and that it protects from wear and tear without altering the innovative design. I have to say, though I haven’t gone out of my way to scuff my iPod, this material is tough–seriously tough.
Yesterday, ZAGG announced that invisibleSHIELDs for the new 13-inch MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro are available for pre-order (they are also selling for a reduced price of USD$43.96). Check out the invisibleSHIELDs currently for Apple laptops, most selling for USD$54.95.
I might be inclined to use the base skin from the invisibleSHIELD with a beautiful Gelaskin for the top (though I don’t think the Gelaskin is nearly as protective).
To serve as a demonstration of the skin’s durability, here’s a video produced by ZAGG that shows two iPhones; one protected by an invisibleSHIELD and one completely naked.
