Spray to make gizmos completely waterproof
The death of my very first and favorite PDA (Personal Digital Assistant, as they were called during those days) came quite suddenly. I remember coming back from work one evening and being completely shocked to find the PDA dripping with water as I took it out of my bag. I swore to never put a water bottle and my gadgets together again, but repeated the mistake soon after, this time with my cell phone. Perhaps I could have saved ‘em fellas if the Golden Shellback Splash Proof Coating had been available back then - assuming I were rich enough to afford it.
This spray (rumored to be priced at $1000) can apparently protect electronic gadgets such as iPods, laptops, and cell phones from liquid, making them completely waterproof. For example, once you spray it onto your cell phone and drop the phone into water, the water-resistant coating ensures that the liquid stays completely out of your phone electronics. Which means that the phone is going to be functional as before, even underwater!
The coating itself is only one-thousandth of an inch thick, making it quite inconspicuous on your gadget. Pretty nifty, huh. Got to tighten those purse strings up until the latter half of the year if you want to lay your hands on this one.
