Look what happens when this iPhone 4 is completely submerged in water:

That’s right, absolutely nothing.

Hang on a second. Nothing happens! That is because the Liquipel iPhone has been treated to a special nano coating which prevents the water from interfering with the electronics.

According to the Liquipel website, this technology can be applied to the following handsets:

Apple iPhone 4s
Apple iPhone 4
Apple iPhone 3g/s
HTC Evo 4G
HTC Evo Shift 4G
HTC MyTouch 4G
HTC Thunderbolt
Motorola Droid X/X2
Samsung Charge

To be honest, I’m surprised that they have opened this out to the public. Whilst prices are very reasonable (less than £50), if this was my idea I would be looking to get Apple & Google in a bidding war to buy the technology. Personally I haven’t ever lost a phone to water damage (famous last words?) but I must read at least one “oops dropped my phone in the sink/shower/bath/toilet/glass of wine” Facebook status every week!

From there, no doubt Apple/Google would apply the technology to their respective tablets. How long till it happens? I’ll give it 12 months max. What do you think?
