For people like me who has invested a lot on their gadgets and smartphones, we could get a bit anxious and paranoid about having our stuff wet whenever we go near a swimming pool or whenever we hangout near the beach. Worse, most of the time, people nowadays tend to bring their gizmos anywhere, even in the bathroom, thus increasing the chances of slipping them onto a wet surface and making them really expensive paper weight.
Luckily for us, the folks at NeverWet have developed an interesting new product that completely repels water and heavy oils. The NeverWet technology, dubbed as super hydrophobic coating, boasts about five key applications: Anti-wetting, anti-icing, anti-corrosion, anti-bacterial and self-cleaning. Basically, this means any object coated with it literally can’t be touched by any liquid, making it virtually 100% waterproof! You don’t believe me? See the video below!
Unbelievably great, isn’t it? Imagine what this technology could do should they become mainstream. Shirts would never be stained during meals, shoes would never need cleaning or brushing, and your oh-so-beloved iPhone can now easily double as an underwater camera without any case! Man, I can’t wait until this technology comes to our shores…
NeverWet is backed by Ross Nanotechnology, LLC, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ross Technology Corporation. Ross Technology Corporation has been in business since 1962 and occupies four separate plants in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
