Stealth’s waterproof PC means no worrying about spills again

Dan Seitz Contributing Writer, Tech

If you’ve ever opened up the case of a desktop after it’s sat around for a few years, it generally looks like your computer components have grown some sort of bizarre, gross fur. Hate that feeling? Now you can stop it cold with a PC that will never, ever, ever get anything inside of it.

Stealth’s waterproof PC systems are pretty much designed to be used anywhere computers generally shouldn’t be. They use solid-state drives and fanless cooling systems, so there’s pretty much nothing in the way of moving parts to break or otherwise fail.

The casing, meanwhile, is completely watertight: In theory, you can dump a whole beer on this thing and it will work perfectly after being hauled out. It pulls that off partially thanks to the connections: Instead of your standard USB and monitor connections, it uses “bayonet” connections, which are waterproof, but hard to replace if they wear out.

That’s not the only cost: These will run you about $1600 a pop. But isn’t it worth it to have a computer you’ll never have to clean? Ever?
