Liquid Image introduces underwater digital camera mask

Just another cool gadget that Japan gets first. Liquid Image's underwater digital camera mask is waterproof to 5 metres, and allows you to snap away while you're snorkelling, diving, or when you just want to take stupid photos of your friends underwater in a pool.

You'll have the freedom of not having to hold a camera in your hands, and when you like something you see, you can take a picture at the touch of a button on the top of the mask.

The internal camera offers 3 megapixels, an LCD screen, 16MB of internal memory (with a microSD card slot to expand it up to 2GB) and even a VGA video mode.

It's apparently available now in Japan for little over $100 (around £50), but has grounds for import if we've ever seen it.
