Bringing your camera to the beach? You can protect it from sand and water without paying an arm and a leg for underwater housing.
Instead, you can grab a pack of condoms, a roll of tissue, and some other household items.

How does it work? The short version – protect your camera with two layers of latex. The longer version, complete with photos and video, is available at Instructables.

The result is a camera (or phone) that you can keep with you while swimming. Depending on the quality of your condoms, your pictures might turn out a bit hazy – but that’s better than having no pictures at all, right?
