iPhone Sprayed with NeverWet and Submerged Underwater, Still Works (Video)
Posted on November 21, 2011 by eli courey
NeverWet, developed at Ross Nanotechnology, is a super hydrophobic coating that completely repels water and heavy oils. Any object coated with NeverWet coating literally cannot be touched by liquid. Any liquid placed on this coating is repelled and simply rolls off without touching the underlying surface.
To demonstrate the product, Ross Nanotechnology sprayed an iPhone 3G with NeverWet and submerged it underwater for 30 minutes. Afterward, the iPhone still worked.
It doesn’t look like NeverWet is available to purchase yet, and I’m not sure if spraying it on an iPhone could cause other problems, but you can check out their website or Facebook page for more information. And watch the video below to see it in action.
