DryWired phones can take a dunking

Mobile
Hey, guys. This is Brian Bennett for cnet.com, and we are at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona. Right now we're taking a first look at a really interesting technology by a company called DryWired. And what they do is basically coat a phone with something that uses a Nano technology to basically coat the inside components and also the outside of the device to protect against water. They could say that it is almost totally waterproof, not quite so it's very water-resistant. It can survive water submersion for about 30 minutes in one meter or about 3 feet. So we're gonna just take a look and see how their work. We've got a Galaxy Note II here and I'll start the timer and we're just gonna dunk it in the water. This is something I would never wanna do with my phone, I have to tell you. There we go. You can see the counter running. Everything is fine. The phone is ticking away and we can leave this in here for about 30 minutes without any issues. Interesting thing about DryWired is that they want to get into company's products from the beginning so they can put this technology into phones as they're made. And then also, they wanna give it to retailers to do the same thing to phones after you purchased the phone. It also will work with tablets too, any sort of electronic device. So, as you can see this Galaxy Note II is sitting under water. It's been here for about 3 minutes now. Apparently, you can leave this in for up to 30 minutes without any issues and all you gotta do is just reach in here, grab it and everything is fine here. It's a little wet as you can tell but, I can stop the timer. The screen is not affected, buttons no problem and there you have it, completely water-resistant almost waterproof. So there you have it folks. We just took a look at the new technology from DryWired which will protect your phone against splashes and water. I'm Brian Bennett for cnet.com.
