Protect Your Blogging Gear with the Invisible Shield

Invisible Shield

I featured the Zagg’s Invisible Shield for the iPhone as the gadget of the week during last week’s Dot Com Pho. Since then I’ve put the shield on my iPhone, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The Invisible Shield is a skin of virtually indestructible film that will protect your expensive blogging equipment from unsightly scratches, dings, keys, etc. It’s main selling point is that it’s invisible (hence the name) and adds almost no weight to your equipment.

Invisible Shields are customcut to fit your hardware perfectly. It is so tough that Zagg backs it with a lifetime guarantee. If it ever does wear or scratch, Zagg will replace it for free, for the life of your device. Below is a video showing what happens when you key an iPhone with and without an Invisible. I’ve also included an video of Gary and me installing an Invisible Shield on my MacBook pro.

    wtf that’s pretty wild lol, i bought the diamond last week and its already scratched

    1. Dang, sucks to have scratches so soon =(

      1. Study Babes says:

        yea it does, but i just checked out zagg and they have one for my phone so i might get it πŸ™‚

    2. my blogginer tool is laptop.. any shield for that ? πŸ˜€

      1. Mike Henry says:

        That would be nice. Or maybe make the shell a strong enough that when a toddler decides to jump on it the screen don’t crack.

      2. I believe that they make a model for laptops too… πŸ™‚

        I use disposable laptops or laptop sleeves Γ  a Belkin, etc.

    3. sorry to hear that man – i am looking to get the Pro version thru an insurance swap

    4. Ben Pei says:

      Lol gotta be more careful..

  2. Pretty sweet material and concept! The second video makes it look pretty time consuming to put on versus a simple rubber case or something.

    1. John Chow says:

      It does take longer to install than a simple rubber case but you only need to do it once and it looks great once it’s installed.

      1. Kok Choon says:

        Cool John! Now you can throw your iPhone to the dog when it tried to bite you…!

      2. I certainly want one for my iPhone…

  3. Pretty cool product. I bet them mofos are rich.

    1. Sohail says:

      yeah this invisible thing is quite interesting. good protection πŸ˜‰

  4. You need to show Darren how to put one on. I talked to him yesterday on Ustream, and he’s not putting one on his new MBP because the one he put on his iPhone is all jacked up.

    1. John Chow says:

      The mistake people make when installing the shield is not using enough solution. You have to get the thing really wet so it moves around easily. If you feel it sticking the instant it goes on, you need more solution!

  5. Dave says:

    We use Invisible Shield now on all our products! Thanks for the recommendation John….

  6. Very useful. I use a similar thing for covering the screen of my Palm Pilot to prevent scratches. I wonder if are invisible shields for cell phones.

  7. Aldhis says:

    I want to have it! Did it sell in other countries?

    1. Keral Patel says:

      Same question. I think it does have huge market in other countries too. Is this going to be sold in other countries? Are some partnership options available?

  8. James says:

    This looks a lot better than some of the other products I’ve seen. The one gripe I have about the iPhone/iPod Touch is that the screen soaks up fingerprints and gets greasy so fast. It looks like this product solves that problem.

  9. Mario says:

    Use Invisible Shield if you do not want to see your computer anymore. lol

    Mario

  10. Jeremy Lim says:

    Ugh, I want one of these so bad. My chubby-rubber case is totally cramping my style.

  11. Arfan says:

    Nice Im going to buy one for my BOLD hahahahaha

  12. Mike Huang says:

    I could’ve sworn I have been reading that the Invisible Shield pretty much sucks with Apple products because of the “rounded edges”. Of course the shield really does protect, but I heard the edges are hard to wrap around and it usually pops up or hold a lot of lint if you put it in your pocket.

    -Mike

    1. John Chow says:

      That has more to do with the installer than the product. I had no problem wrapping my shield around the edge of my iPhone.

      1. Mike Huang says:

        Really? I never used it, but just heard that it’s difficult to wrap on a Apple product because of the round edges. I guess it could be the person doing it πŸ˜›

        -Mike

    2. Kok Choon says:

      May be you should read carefully about the installation instruction or get someone with experience…

      or

      You may buy few and practice yourself πŸ˜›

  13. MoneyBlog says:

    Good protection,thanks for the recommendation

  14. Alex Fraiser says:

    I have tried putting this on my iPod Touch, and it was the most frustrating thing I have ever done with technology. I was really bad at it too, I had to dilute it when I ran out of solution the first few tries. What a mess it was, but I eventually got it on my iPod and it works amazingly.

    I was thinking to put it on my Mac, but I don’t know if I really want to do it all over again after the first mess!

    1. Kok Choon says:

      I know this is a big challenge, you might not get it right the first few times… just do it slowly.

  15. BusinessX says:

    Does anyone consider banged up, scratched hardware a badge of honor? Like saying your life is your less “Sex In The City” and more “Indiana Jones”. Get some mud on your shoes!

  16. Keron Calame says:

    its a good thing, it use to be in my google referrals but since google discontinued the referral program it no longer there

  17. Tinh says:

    Good tip, I will follow and see. Thanks

  18. Gary says:

    The invisibleSHIELD is the best thing you can buy for your iPhone! It’s even better when you add it to all your other gadgets like John’s MacBook Pro and MBA. Thanks to ZAGG for sponsoring this review!

  19. Yep, it’s great. I’m getting one for my iPod…

  20. muratos says:

    By the way, I would like to inform you that they have one of the best affiliate programs. You will see really big commissions if you advertise their skins deliberately. Easy selling easy profits πŸ™‚ I am in my positive mood today to give my income source hints for free πŸ™‚

  21. Dfunda says:

    they are must need able things for a gadget…

  22. Pretty sweet material and concept! The second video makes it look pretty time consuming to put on versus a simple rubber case or something.

  23. Gokhiel says:

    I don’t need this protection… coz I don’t have IPhone..hehehe

  24. keriman says:

    Good tip, I will follow and see. Thanks

  25. Gadgets says:

    Pretty, cool. Now all I have to do is get me an iphone πŸ™‚

  26. After my friend dropped his Iphone last night and completely ruined the screen, I will have to look into getting one of these for mine.

  27. Interesting. I have no use for it right now, but maybe in the near future I will.

  28. Takumi86 says:

    Interesting but does this really that worked? i mean they can guaranteed to give you fully protection that have no gap and weakness?

  29. Blogangry says:

    That stuff really works great I had it on my iphone, and I have it on my 3G

  30. andy says:

    I tried this stuff on my laptop and it worked great. Look into this if you haven’t already!

  31. Chip says:

    I saw recently some crash tests for iPhone. That was pretty sick. The guy was really exageratted. And the iPhone quit eventually.

    You know what they say, the smartest one quits first.

  32. Need to get an iphone first

  33. Diana Rupert says:

    I love Iphone so much it brings out the best in me.

  34. I thought you already did something on the Invisible Shield.
