Fabien Cousteau and his team of aquanauts are spending 31 days underwater all in the name of science. The Mission 31 project ( www.mission-31.com) is a combination of modern scientific exploration, tribute to Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and modern media to get the word out. And while all of that is in and of itself worthy of your attention, it's the fact that the team is using the Lumia 1020 that has our interest piqued.
In partnership with Nokia and Watershot Inc. www.watershot.com), Cousteau's team can take the Lumia 1020 on their dives through a customized phone housing. That metal case can withstand 100 meters / 328 feet under the sea, which is extraordinarily deep. Watershot is selling a limited quantity of the specialty case, which cost $300 each. While not cheap by consumer standards, this is a specialty case for pros.
I have one, and this is an unboxing and quick tour of this magnificent piece of equipment.
