    Yeah, it would be cool to be able to keep your phone on you at the beach or waterpark, especially if you have the ability to pay for food and what not with NFC.

    This is pretty cool, although anyone know if the coating affect the warrenty? Also i checked out another company doing something similar, P2i, and the text they have on their site, the guy in this video seems to copy word for word, so not sure what is going on there...

    P2i is Motorola's nanocoat provider.

    This FAQ is from the HzO site linked above and may explain why Moto doesn't market the Razr as "waterproof".

    Does HzO WaterBlock meet IP waterproof standards? Well – yes and no. IP Standards mean Ingress Protection Standards. “International standard IEC 60529, IP Code classifies and rates the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects (including body parts like hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water in mechanical casings and with electrical enclosures” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_Code). While WaterBlock meets many of the standards for protection from water listed in the IP standard, these water standards were developed to measure the ability to keep water OUT and AWAY from electronic circuitry. In fact, the definition of “ingress” refers to the ability to enter. HzO WaterBlock allows water and moisture to enter and infiltrate the electronic circuitry without damaging or allowing the circuitry to ground and be destroyed. Therefore, yes, we meet levels of protection identified in IP standards, but in a very different way. As a result, HzO has written a new standard we call the WaterBlock standard that specifies water protection from the inside out.

    They should sale this to auto windshield makers, you wouldn't need wipers anymore, it looks like it would work better then rain x, or even on swim wear, or or your clothing, no more rain jackets, the applications are endless, can i by stock in the company?

    Guess it's a possibility. If car manufacturers could batch process a large number of windshields at a time without having to add any extra time to manufacturing then it could definitely happen soon. Or a company like Safe Lite who does windshield replacement could add this as a selling point of choosing them if you have a destroyed windshield. Yeah, one of these companies might be worth buying stock in.

    The problem I see is with durability. They say it will last a lifetime, but with all the plugging/unplugging, scratches from everyday use, etc., I find it hard to believe it will still be as waterproof as they show in the video months later.

    If there was a retail store in my area, I'd go have my phone done this weekend! I couldn't go phone-less for a week though, so mailing it isn't a viable option for me.

    It becomes part of the molecular make-up of the handset. It's not like a coating per se.

    It's definitely a coating that is physically bonded to the surfaces of the device, no different than the treatment used over gore tex to increase water resistance. If the liquipel fluid actually became a part of the phone, which could only happen if you broke and reformed the bonds holding all the materials together, it would completely change the properties of all the materials making the phone up. No pressure vat is going to make all that happen and give you a usable end product.
