Ever taken your iDevice to the john and dropped it accidentally in water? If you're one of those who happened to face that misfortune and spent a lot of money in repairing your device (if at all it can be repaired), you'll be glad to know that Liquipel has come out with a revolutionary waterproofing solution that can protect your iDevice from accidental water splash.

Liquipel is a revolutionary process that applies a watersafe coating on select smartphones and tablets to protect them in the event of accidental exposure to liquids. The waterproof coating does not compromise on the look or the touch feature of your gadgets, as it is several times thinner than human hair and virtually undetectable by the human eyes.

"Liquipel is a Nano-Coating that is applied though a propriety process. This process starts by placing devices into the chamber of the Liquipel Machine. The machine removes the air inside the chamber to create a vacuum and our special Liquipel formula is introduced in vapor form. The Liquipel coating permeates the entire device and bonds to it on a molecular level leaving it watersafe for years to come," noted Liquipel's official Web site.

The company, which showcased its technology at CES 2013, claims that a device treated with the new version of Liquipel is able to achieve a water resistance rating of IPX7, which means the device can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes. The waterproof coating, Liquipel claims, will last longer than the device it is protecting.

To get your device treated with Liquipel you will have to send your gadget to them and the price starts from $59.99. Liquipel is also opening its own retail store at the West Edmonton Mall in Canada this February.
