So far there are a few ‘splash resistant’ phones on the market, but the cost of handling a few beads of water usually comes with some disfigured appearance and added weight. We’ve longed for a solution, and thankfully CES served up this ideal treat.

From what we’ve seen, Liquipel pretty much fits the bill. It’s an invisible coating that is “a thousand times thinner than a human hair”, so it doesn’t compromise the look or feel of your phone. It will, however, protect your phone if it comes into contact with water.

It can be applied to any electronic device, from smartphones to iPads, and a treatment costs only US$60. Unfortunately there are no retail outlets in Australia that apply the technology, but you can send your phone out to the company to have the special coating applied.
 
To prove how effective the technology is, the company treated a tissue with Liquipel and then submerged it in water. When they pulled it out, beads of water slid right off it, completely defying the tissues natural absorbing properties.

The advancement also gives you an idea on how current phone manufacturers will make their devices waterproof without the traditional drawbacks.
