About

1. Introduction

The TOUCHBAG is a patent-pending, generic waterproof bag suitable for most smartphones of different sizes. It works with most capacitive touchscreens models of iPhone and almost all Android phones. We are not the first to have the idea of using the touchscreen underwater, but the TOUCHBAG will likely be the world’s first device that works with all different phone sizes at the same time for this purpose.


2. The idea

Have you ever noticed that waterproof smartphones do not work very well when they are wet?

This is because they depend on the conductivity of your fingers. As water is also conductive, it confuses the touchscreen.

The usual waterproof smartphone bags bring you protection against water damage, but they do not really help the problem we talked about.

The TOUCHBAG added a layer of “air pocket” to separate the water from the screen. Therefore, your smartphone screen will work underwater! You can operate the phone, taking pictures underwater.


Where can you use TOUCHBAG?

  1. At the pool

  2. In the shower

  3. In Heavy rain

  4. Doing water sports

  5. Snorkeling
