Frog Skins

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 -, but a quick Google search turned up they are available at Amazon for $14.99 for a 3-pack of Frog Skins.
