HzO dips smartphone in beer, it lives to tell the tale

HzO demos technology that will protect your phones from spills, water, and more

CES 2013 - Walking the halls of the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in Las Vegas last week, we came across a demo from HzO which was super impressive. They've developed a proprietary nanotechnology that uses nanocoating that gets applied to the internal components of a device.

 

 

After this, the device is put through a vapor deposition process and voila, your smart device is pretty much water proof. The demo involved dropping a smartphone into a bowl of beer and it survived. The phone was taken out of the beer, quickly dumped in some water, and had the battery reinserted. It was turned on in front of our eyes and it worked.

Can this be applied to all technology, yesterday? Thanks, HzO.
