New water-resistant coating protects your phone, the planet (video)

New water-resistant coating protects your phone, the planet (video)

Water, the life-long foe of all things electrical. Protecting our digital finery from its evil infiltration is a task many have undertaken, and the latest battalion to join the foray is Daikin Industries. The chemical company is developing a water-resistant coating that could save many devices from a watery grave. We’ve seen similar ideas before, but Daikin’s promises to have good eco-credentials thanks to its low toxicity. Formed by dissolving a fluoropolymer in fluorinated solvent, the coating takes just a minute to dry and is extremely thin — between 0.1 and 1 microns. The coating isn’t designed for full waterproofing, but rather to raise the base level resistance to liquid attacks. Most interestingly of all, it can also be applied to porous and meshed surfaces, such as mouthpiece grills. It’s hoped to be commercially available from December this year, so you’ll have to try to avoid any little accidents until then.

iShower water-resistant Bluetooth speaker being unveiled at CES, aims to improve those shower jams



We don’t blame you for being surprised when you first met the iGrill meat thermometer. We mean, how couldn’t you be? But now, the creators of the temperature indicator are hitting you with yet another peripheral, and this time it’s heading to your shower — that’s right, your shower. The iShower is a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker capable of streaming up to 15 hours of audio within a 200-foot range. The add-on will allow you to interact with the usual options like play, pause, rewind and forward, while also displaying the time (just in case you like to camp out in there). Similar to its meaty counterpart, the iShower will cost $ 100, and don’t let the “i” included in its dub fool you — the device is also ready to mingle with the Androids of the world. The shower-jammer’s official launch will be next week at CES, but you can take a peek at the PR to find out some more info in the here and now.

Sony Ericsson Reveals Ultra-Thin Xperia Ray, Water-Resistant Xperia Active Smartphones

Looks like two new Xperia smartphones are headed out of Sony Ericsson labs and into the wild, with an expectation to launch in the third quarter.

We still don’t know much about the handsets, called the Xperia Ray and the Xperia Active, although we can confirm that both will be powered by Google’s Android OS. From the ads, we’re thinking that the Ray will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it’s hard to tell which version of the OS got slapped on to the Active.

Ricoh outs rather rugged, water-resistant G700 point and shoot

Ricoh’s released a new point and shoot, the G700. This little camera’s water and dust resistant, it will supposedly withstand a drop of up to 2 meters, and its resistant to chemicals such as ethanol and hypochlorous acid, so shooting pics of the chemically-driven, zombie-infested apocalypse shouldn’t be much of a challenge. Other than that, you’ve got a 12.1 megapixel sensor, a 5x optical wide-angle zoom lens, a 3-inch color LCD, and password protection. You know, so the zombies can check out your shots! This baby will be released on September 10th in Japan, but as of yet, there’s no word on pricing or a US release.
