My favorite tech from CES 2012 is Liquipel

Water, the precursor for all life on Earth and yet, incidentally,  looming doom for the gadgets we can’t live without.

It really doesn’t even make sense when you figure Earth is 70% covered by water. So why aren’t are gadgets water proof already, or at the very least safe from sweat and rain. Alright so there are a few of those devices, but realistically every electronic device should be impervious to water. Up until recently the best way to accomplish this feat has been to take rigorous measures to seal the device, but seals wear and impair wireless usability. There’s got to be a better way. Enter Liquipel.

Liquipel repels water at the molecular level. Now we’re talking! The process entails placing your device in a vacuum chamber then subsequently pumping it full of Liquipel formula as a vapor, allowing it to permeate all aspects of the device. After which the vapor is molecularly binded to your device’s materials and what you’re left with is a device not unlike any other of the same type, to the naked eye. The Liquipel treatment is only visible under a microscope.

Trust me, as cool as that sounds, its even more fascinating on video. Take a look at this.

Yeah. The future is now friends. Of course, some of you may look on at Liquipel as old hat if you remember rival company HzO debuting similar technology this past November, but to you folks I say, you can get Liquipel right now. That’s right, you don’t necessarily even have to wait on this one if you have $60 in your wallet.  Several Android handsets are accepted and more are being added as they go.

So if you’re ready to start singing to Google Music in the shower or feel like checking Gmail in the hot tub you should definitely check out Liquipel now.

Here’s hoping one of these companies forms a partnership with Android OEMs.
