DryWired exposed this iPhone, and other devices, to an unbelievable amount of liquid. These electronics were placed in an aquarium and constantly splashed with water to drive home the point of water resistance.

Another interesting demonstration DryWired had in store was a nano-treated napkin. No matter how much water it sat in, it never became water logged.
