Galaxy S2 Release: HzO Technology Makes Galaxy S2 Waterproof (VIDEO)

HzO demonstrated its technology that waterproofs electronic devices at a press preview for the "Consumer Electronics Show" in New York on Nov. 8.

HzO President and CEO Paul S. Clayson used a Samsung Galaxy S2 handset outfitted with the company's WaterBlock technology to show how the phone could maintain function while being submerged underwater.

“It is a very exciting technology that we feel will be able to change the durability and life-time value of your smartphone as well as other mobile electronic devices as these units tend to fail quickly with moderate exposure to water and/or moisture,” said HzO Head of Business Development Scott Gordon to The Christian Post.

In a video provided by technology website the Paper PC, Clayson submerges a Galaxy S2 underwater and then makes a phone call to the handset. The smartphone is able not only to receive the phone call underwater, but it also able to maintain function after it is taken out of the water.

The HzO technology works in a unique way by allowing water to get inside electronics, such as smartphones, without causing water damage, as opposed to attempting to keep water out.

Gordon detailed to The Christian Post that the WaterBlock technology is a “vapor deposition of a proprietary blend of chemicals that provide a thin, but protective layer over the important electronics of a device without sacrificing the designers intended aesthetics of the phone.”

He noted the “real genius” of the technology is that it is used to treat the inside of a device, where it is most susceptible to water damage, even if attempts are made to prevent it.

A number of devices were tested with HzO’s WaterBlock technology, including Apple products, such as the iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle, and Android devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S2.
