    They had a product on there that made things waterproof. They had documents from 300 years ago that they were dunking in water, then I saw that they had an iphone on the table, so I assume they dunked that in water too. Anyways, I caught the tail end of it and they never mentioned the product. Anyone watch it?

    Yea, I was watching a YouTube video showing something like that, probably the same thing. Can't find the video again, but it was some kind of waterproof film that they professionally install on devices and laptops and stuff, it showed people pouring liquid on laptops and a pda/phone still working underwater. Would be really cool for use in the pool, but they said it was expensive.

    I saw that product on another show and it cost about $1,000 for laptop coverage. It may just be worth getting a new laptop instead.

    I saw the preview, but didnt see the video as the cable guy was there to fix my cable, but if you go to www.todayshow.com and scroll over in the video section, you can re-watch it. It's entitled Video: Waterproof your Gadgets. I cant link because its a pop-up.

    I think what you're all talking about is the Golden Shellback coating. I found an article on Engadget that has a video. Link

    I read about this on Engadget.

    It seems like a great idea, and whenever they make this more publicly available, I will definitely consider it.

    And, they're located fairly close to my area if I remember correctly :D.

    so i could put it on my iphone or laptop and just throw them in the pool and they will work fine? that'd be sweet. i'd feel like Vinny Chace on Entourage with the phones in the pool

    ??

    I haven't watched the video of this (yet). Forgive me for a dumb question, but does this waterproofing cover the ports? I mean, could you put an iPhone in a syncing cradle with this waterproofing applied?

    EDIT: watched the video. The iPod Touch headphone port appeared to be working in the demo, so i guess that answered my question.

    applied in a vacuum
    waterproofs outside AND INSIDE
    thats amazing
    my question is....will it also work like an invisibleshield for scratch protection?

    just think how cool it would be to pull out your iPhone and dunk it in water
    then all my friends who laugh at how careful i have to be with my phone will be put in their place
