- For this project, you are just gonna need a clear plastic dome, a ballon and a rubber band.

- Plastic domes can be easily found in almost every home decoration shop or even cheaper on ebay or aliexpress. It can also be obtained from an old dome cameras if you have one lying around.

Step 2: Assembeling

- To start with, I firstly removed a small plastic hanging on the dome with a dremel. Try to do this step slowly to prevent the dome from cracking or making any additional scratches.

- The next step is to cut top and blowing bottom of the balloon away with scissors.

- Once that is done, simply stretch the balloon over the dome with leaving the hole in the middle. You may fail this step few times but after many tries your dome should be ready for rubber band to firmly secure the balloon from detaching from the dome.

- The last step is to take your gopro and push it through the hole in the balloon and make sure there is not space for water to leak in.
