Nokia Research Working on a Superhydrophobic Coating to Keep Phones Dry (video)March 7, 2012 1 Comment
Nokia wants its phone to be alot more like the lotus leaf
“The drop of water falls, bounces, and rolls away without trace – leaving the leaf clean and water repellant.”
The Nokia research team over in Cambridge believe they may be able to replicate the effect on your phone, using nanotechnology. Chris Bower, the Principal Scientist at the NRC in Cambridge, sums it up by stating that “Like many scientists we are trying to copy what nature has been doing perfectly for thousands of years.”
The whole project is really interesting and it would be awesome to see a Nokia Lumia device repel water the way that this coating does.
