I'm not sure exactly where I came across this post (probably Twitter) but it really intrigued me - Geek Doctor - Frog Skins. I really found it interesting how this post describes using the Frog Skin to protect a phone used in an operating room of a hospital. The skin would protect the phone if a doctor or nurse touched it with contaminated hands.
Immediately I thought of a using with students who might get fluids on a device. I've actually had a situation where a student (through no fault of their own), get a small amount of saliva on a screen, which didn't damage it, but caused the screen to read 2 different inputs and then the iPod Touch wouldn't respond correctly. This skin would help with that problem.
The Frog Skins website is not very helpful - http://www.keyfrog.com, but a quick Google search turned up they are available at Amazon for $14.99 for a 3-pack of Frog Skins.
