iFans at CES: Forget About a Bowl of Rice, Liquipel Makes Your Device Waterproof

A lot of exhibitors at the International CES convention attempt to get people interested in their brand by having attractive female models on scene to promote their products. While the folks at Liquipel did have a few models on hand, it was the large, misty waterfall that truly grabbed my attention.

It turns out that it was worth taking a look after all, as Liquipel is a very interesting hydrophobic coating that makes your devices completely waterproof. Liquipel 2.0 was announced at CES 2013, and is up to 100 times more effective than its original Liquipel predecessor.

Thanks to Liquipel, you can literally put an iPhone or iPad in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes, and the device won’t suffer any damage. The best thing about Liquipel is that it does not require using an iPhone case, meaning that you can look at the elegant design of your device without worrying.

I can think of an occasion when Liquipel would have proved useful for my own device, like when I accidentally jumped into an indoor pool with both my iPod touch and old cellphone. iOS devices get liquid damage all the time — from toilets, pools, sinks — so Liquipel is a unique product that deserves the recognition.
