    They did a trial with a small number of customers early this year I believe. Read about it on a tech blog a ways back. Hadn't thought about it since. As far as I'm concerned it likely works like many sprays to waterproof shoes/boots. Fills in the gaps with clear silicone or some similar polymer.

    that's pretty intense.. wonder if it leaves a film on your device..?

    I also wonder if you have to open your device and spray the inside? interesting..

    This is zaggs purchase of golden shellback finally seeing the light of day...exciting! http://golden-shellback.com/

    There's another company also doing this too, saw it last night but don't remember the name, so hopefully the competition keeps the price reasonable

    If I remember correctly, they spray the device in a vacuum, and I THINK it does require them opening up your device. Also, doesn't leave a noticeable coating from what I remember...it's not even sprayed on the outside, as glass and plastic doesn't need to be waterproofed, it just waterproofs the electrical components on the inside

    ----------

    It's a liquid compound (ironic, I know) that gets sprayed on the elecrical components and shields them from moisture

    If it is the Golden Shell product, my understanding was that it is not a permanent solution and lasted for a specific time and exposure period as well. If its permeant, then I am interested.

    Certainly intriguing. Want to read reviews before forking out. :)

    Whoa, this is intriguing. I don't see it on the Zagg website so I presume it's not released for public... As long as the price isn't extreme and doesn't require taking the device apart, I might be interested. Would also love to read reviews about this.

    it must involve taking the device apart surely? i cant see how injecting this (unless they literally cover everything inside?)

    oh god i dont even know. This is definitely the future though, i can see this going big as long as it gets the right marketing.

    Oh cool!
    I'm looking forward to swimming with my iPhone again for a while, coz the last one which did so with me died afterwards.

    Hope the price isn't extreme.
