The great smart phone can’t seem to avoid it’s one fatal downfall (so to speak): The toilet.
How many have lost a phone to the throne? OK, put down your hands. That might just become a thing of the past. Wouldn’t that be great?
Well, three companies showed off their stuff at CES 2012… HzO, P2i and Liquirepel all are coming to the rescue. Apparently, 82.5 million phones have been damaged by moisture. I’ve seen posts here in forums so this caught my eye.
Currently dry, uncooked rice or dried silica gel packets are being used (along with gentle hair drier use) to fix things.
Perhaps the new spray on or specially (preventively) applied material/nanofilms might be the solutions of the future. The HzO company has added a plus: Impermeability to Gas, oil, and even nerve gas. Always a plus, depending on the neighborhood in which one lives.
There’s already such a product on the market: Fujitsu’s “Arrows” tablet. Motorola was first to embrace the technology with “Splash Guard” coating, which might be a short term protection only. HzO’s appears to last much longer (according to them).
Anyway folks, the day of the commode killed cell (so you can flush telling your mom that’s why you didn’t call) is probably coming to an end.
