CES 2012: Hands On With P2i’s Moisture Repelling Technology.

The Droid RAZR by itself isn’t necessarily anything special. Sure. It’s a fast Android phone. But unbeknownst to us is one small feature that is (thankfully) beginning to catch on: Waterproofing.

Now to be clear, P2i’s nano technology as it is implemented on the RAZR does not protect it from water should you go swimming with it. However, it greatly adds resistance to moisture based corrosion and small splashes of liquid.

Interestingly enough, P2i president, Dr Stephen Coulson, originally invented their coating technology for military specific scenarios.

Perhaps the best proof of concept/demo we saw involved napkins coated in P2i’s proprietary substance that literally kept said napkin bone dry despite being repeatedly submerged in water.

We’re not lying when we say that our entire basis of life as related to the assumed physics of water absorption by napkins has changed drastically. But don’t take our word for it. Hop past the break for a chance to have your mind blown compliments of P2i…
