Well with the new year we are sure to get lots of new gadget’s and toys at CES. This year has been no exception and while Apple makes no real presence at CES, instead creating their own events, there is still news that does pertain to our favorite iOS devices. This year CES at brought lots of things but one that really caught my attention is an update to a very cool technology designed to keep your device completely waterproof, click on after the break for more details.
Last year Liquipel announced an amazing nano-coating service that when applied to the phone would make it completely water safe. But earlier today Liquipel announced Liquipel 2.0 which claims to have “significant advancements in durability, corrosion resistance and water protection” over what we saw last year. Essentially what this new version promises is more durability without increasing the bulk of coating. They even let CES attendees drop a coated iPhone 5 under two feet of water without the iPhone even blinking.
According to Liquipel it’s protection can achieve a waterproof rating of IPX7 which corresponds to the devices being able to survive through about 3 feet of water for about 30 minutes. Also the new coating style is easier to apply and can even be done by third-party stores. One of the most inconvenient things about getting Liquipel applied was that you had to send away your device to have it coated and then they would send it back to you. While this worked it was very inconvenient for the consumer. Now with what the company is calling the “Liquipods” shops that wish to offer the service, or sell any smartphones, can buy a Liquipod in order do the coating right at the store. This is definitely something that I can see going into lots of smart phone stores and maybe event Apple stores if were lucky. If you interested enough though from the below video you go head over to Liquipel’s site and send your device off to get its coating right away.
This seems like a really cool and simple way to protect your device and if I ever see one of the Liquipod’s I might try it myself.
