CNN came out with an article on their website, highlighting a new nano-coating technology that after sprayed on a surface, will provide complete protection against liquids. "British-based firm P2i has developed a 'liquid repellent nano-coating' technology -- branded Aridion™ -- that can be sprayed onto a solid surface and, they claim, repel nearly all forms of liquid.". Once something has been sprayed, it is invisible as "The chemical itself is a little less than 50 nanometers wide -- that's 1,000 times thinner than a human hair and, suffice to say, completely invisible to the naked eye.".
This new technology is very effective, "Now having demonstrated that Aridion can repel almost any type of liquid from almost any type of solid surface and also act, incidentally, as an anti-microbial and flame retardant". The spray can be put on almost anything, and the result is that liquids will bead up on the surface, instead of being absorbed by the material. Now that you can drop your phone in liquid, water damage will be the thoughts of an older generation of technology users.
Personally, I could use the peace of mind for my smart phone. What would you waterproof?
