Medtronic's LIFEPAK 15 defibrillator for extreme conditions, or extremely clumsy paramedics

Sure, everybody loves a tough notebook -- but there are all sorts of gadgets that can benefit from the tough treatment. Adding to the list of electronics suitable for dropping, kicking, and spraying with water, Medtronic's LIFEPAK 15 -- which just received FDA approval, by the by -- is a portable heart monitor / defibrillator equipped with all sorts of fun features, including an audible CPR Metronome, a dual-mode color LCD with a high-contrast mode for use in bright sunlight, up to six hours of operating time, and energy dosing for difficult-to-defibrillate patients. Just make sure it's nice and dry before you plug the paddles in. For reals. Video after the break.
