Samsung is the latest electronics-maker to give its SD and microSD cards a thicker skin. Today Samsung announced that its newest two lines of products are waterproof, shockproof, and magnetproof.

Beyond that, they're "guaranteed to survive up to 24 hours in water, withstand the force of a 1.6 ton vehicle (3,200 pounds), and resist up to 10,000 gauss," which is nearly the power of a medical-grade imaging magnet.

This translates into tougher cards that can keep the digital contents of smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, and camcorders safe from the elements--or from you.

Samsung's seven new products break down into two lines, the High Speed Series and Plus Extreme Speed Series, each of which covers a range of memory capacities and read/write speeds. Prices also range, from about $10 to about $90.

Samsung isn't alone in the pursuit of incorruptible memory. Monster and SanDisk also offer their own rugged SD and microSD cards.
