HzO waterproofing nanotech liquid was the most fascinating invention at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, though I wouldn’t go swimming with my iPhone just yet. The water-blocking nanotech compounds can make devices work even when fully submerged underwater, meaning those Google underwater street views are now applicable! I can’t wait to take my phone on an underwater trip to the great barrier reef.

Like a transparent shield, HzO’s proprietary WaterBlock™ nanotechnology is a coating of bonded molecules that seals the internal components of electronic devices. This chemical vapor deposition process blankets vital electronic circuitry to protect even the most sensitive devices from damage by water, moisture, contaminating particles and humidity.

Unfortunately, the coating is not available to consumers so you’ll have to wait until the next line of Samsung and Apple phones are produced. While I can’t repair my water damaged laptop from its premature demise from a watery dip, this landlubber is looking forward to some watery adventures with tech gear in the near future.
