Nokia develops nanoparticles to repel water

Nokia developed a system based in nanoparticles which is capable of repelling water in our devices, named Hydrophobic Nanocoating. It’s a coating of nanoparticles for mobile phones capable of retaining air in its structure repelling water actively.

Thanks to a crystal treated with nanoparticles, if we drop a liquid it doesn’t spread but, on the contrary, it slides until disappearing from the surface without leaving traces.

Trying hydrophobic nanoparticles in the interior of several gadgets will be very useful to protect our electronic devices from liquids.

Even though for now Nokia pretends to include it to mobile phone’ displays it is probable that its use will be extended to all kind of devices.
