Help needed again... does anyone have anything that needs being waterproofed? Answered

I have this idea for a fairly good waterproof housing, and I am trying to make a video out of it... The problem is: I'm looking for something exciting/catchy to waterproof, that would catch people's attention. I thought of putting a cellphone or walky talky in the housing, going under water and making funny sounds, while someone listens to it on the shore with a second handset... Anyone can come up with a better idea?

Ok... It'd be cool to have a waterproof housing for one of the commonly available, cheap, standard, disposable (film) cameras (Kodak or Fuji, I guess.) Or for that matter, one of the disposable digital cameras! Another idea: underwater "LED Throwies" (adjust for neutral boyuancy; throw a bunch in your swimming pool.)

I'd thought of the digital camera, but certainly not of the 'underwater led throwies'. You have a rich imagination!

my cousin practice funboard (winsurnfing in waves) and always says: it would be cool if i can have a waterproof walkman. the problem is not the case for the walkman or mp3 player, it is the headphones. i made ones but sounds really bad.

Sadly, I don't really have an answer for the headphones either...

It would be great to waterproof a cell phone without loosing functionality. Moisture is one of the more common causes of cell phone problems.

acrylic plastic or plexiglass...use a plastic solvent to glue the pieces together and it should make it water proof if your looking for something a little more flexible..well...a plastic bag

He's not looking for a process of making a waterproof container. He's looking for something to put in it.
