Protecting touch screens from little fingers & more: Wrapsol

Techstination feature for Friday, December 3, 2010

Protecting touch screens from little fingers and more. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Those touch screen smartphones and tablets are everywhere these days and when mom or dad has one, it's only natural for the kids to want to play. The games are great. But what's not so great is what the screen looks like when the kids are done. And even without kids around the smudges can get pretty bad. That's why screen protectors have become big business and can make good gifts for the holidays. Wrapsol is out with a new line of Clean protectors that also cut glare. What makes them different? The company's Brooke Hughes...

"They were the creators of the Formula One car bumper protectors. That same film that protects those cars against scratches and dents and dings while they're driving, they use that same technology on devices."

Price depends upon size. For smartphones, about 15 dollars. The iPad version is about ten dollars more. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
