While I was at Pepcom, the Digital Experience at CES 2013 last night, I had a chance to see another way to protect a mobile device from water damage. Now, I have seen many ways of doing this, and most of them involved putting in a tight plastic bag.
Liquipel is not that, but it uses nanotechnology protection. I don’t know how familiar you are with nanotechnology, but it is a word that I hear a lot from science fiction. Liquipel’s process involves something even more sci-fi with its use of “super-hydrophopic nanotechnology”.
The man at the booth took a Galaxy S III phone, which he told me was covered in Liquipel’s special coating. The mobile device didn’t feel any different than any ordinary device. I was sort of expecting it to feel like something that ZAGG’s Invisible Shield or similar product would produce.
No, the nano-coating of Liquipel was hardly detectable, but it definitely produced results as the man dipped his Galaxy S III phone into the small puddle of water before him. Of course, I had to fight the urge to stop him. However, the S III resisted the water, and it just slid off.
If seeing is believing, then I can testify that Liquipel really works. As further proof, I was given an ordinary Kleenex that was treated with Liquipel. It was able to resist the water like magic.
Getting your mobile device treated with Liquipel has to be done at the very beginning, but if you want to go to the Liquipel site at www.Liquipel.com, you can send in your mobile, have it treated, and not worry about it getting wet. I wouldn’t go scuba diving, but it is good to have this effective hydro-protection.
