CES 2012 – iPhone 5 To Be Waterproof?

by John Chow on January 17, 2012

While walking the CES show floor, we came across a company call HzO. They make a technology that allows manufacturers to waterproof their devices.

How Does It Work?

WaterBlock is a chemical vapor deposition that blankets vital electronic circuitry with a nano-thin film containing highly effective, water-repelling properties. When applied, it is transparent and creates a finish that doesn’t disrupt the look and feel.

The product is not available to end consumers. Hz0 is working with manufacturers to add WaterBlock to their products. Naturally, the company declined to state who those manufacturers are, but a waterproof iPhone 5 would be a great selling feature!
