Thanks for forwarding that link. I went to their site and watched the video. Clearly they need someone with my expertise. I would have called it the "P-Pocket". And it's not even Bluetooth enabled!
I do like the concept of the integral clamp. That probably reduces the leakage somewhat. Also it lets you use a urinal without having to "drop trou" in public. Nice. Not sure I'd pay $3.00 per for it though.
Just for the record, I have further refined my pee pad usage to minimize cost per day. I use the CVS verson of mens guard at $0.25 each, and boost it with half of a moderate flow pad ($0.16/2) that I cut ahead of time. The moderate pad fills by 11AM. I replace it with the other half which is good until 5:00PM. I take that out and just fill the guard for the rest of the evening. Total: 49 cents per day - less the discount for coupons etc. I get that clean dry feeling 4 times per day for relatively low cost. (sorry Kimberly-Clarke)
Another side benefit is the moderate half pads take up a lot less space in your shirt pocket so you can easily carry them everywhere if you need to be in public.
Only 47 hours to lift off. But who's counting?
