    Waterproof Universal Remote Control

    Does anyone know where I can find a waterproof (or maybe even just water resistant) universal remote control. I'd like to skip songs, etc from my floating pool chair, so a water-resistant remote would be awesome. Full blown water-proof that can float on it's own in the water would be the best.

    Anyone know of this? Thank.

    Dang - I realized I posted this in the wrong forum.

    Mods - can you move to Pool Equipment (or wherever is more appropriate than 'Reviews')? Thanks.

    We borrowed our neighbors 'Foodsaver' machine. You know the one that sucks the air out of a special bag for long term storage of fresh food.
    Been over a year and our stereo remote still works great!

    Nope, you can control the amount of vacuum. I've done the same thing with a digital camera. Worked pretty good if you ignore the bit of distortion introduced by the plastic foodsaver bag.

    I don't have any direct experience with this product, but you might look into a Balboa Dolphin.
