Since the iPad is too delicate for rigorous adventures, developers at Sqigle created the Earl tablet. The Earl is an armored and destruction-proof tablet that was built for tech-savvy adventurers. Earl features an e-ink touchscreen, solar panels and 16 gigabytes of storage that runs Android 4.1.

All of this technology is packed into housing that is impervious to the elements. If you need to go for a swim, the tablet can survive three feet of water for half an hour before giving out. It’s also dust and shock-proof so you don’t have to worry about dropping it in the desert.

The tablet was built with various sensors in order to help you on your travels. GPS chips along with motion and orientation sensors allow you to accurately track your location and elevation. In addition, internal weather sensors work to forecast so that you’re never caught off guard.
