An upcoming product called the Golden Shellback appears to defy the laws of…well, everything we know about water and electronics. It is able to completely waterproof any electronic gadget — from cell phones to laptops — with no ugly plastic shells or annoying rubber membranes. In fact, the devices look 100% normal, except for being underwater. The only thing known about the process is that it’s done in a vacuum; beyond that, the company is being tight-lipped about what exactly they’re using to perform this miracle (understandable — they’re going to make millions from this). Pricing isn’t set, but is estimated to be a relative bargain at $50-$75 per device. If nothing else, I would consider doing this to my DSLR.
A demonstration video is below, with a foreword from TekZilla’s Patrick Norton. In it, you’ll see horror-inducing clips of water being poured on laptops and cell phones and iPods being submerged in buckets of water.
