This could be one of the greatest technologies ever

July 22, 2008

And I mean it.  This process isn’t yet available to the public, but Patrick and Roger were raving about it on Tekzilla and are seemingly justified in doing so.  Essentially, they create a water-proof shielding around practically anything.  The most obvious application is electronics like laptops, cell phones, mp3 players, etc. 

However, Roger even said the demonstrators suggested that ice cubes could be treated.  Which means, they would effectively create something I felt would sell really well, ice cubes that don’t water down drinks.  The ice would melt inside the protective layer without messing with the taste of your drink, and then you could just refreeze the cube.  How awesome would that be?

Everything should be waterproof.

    I’m pretty sure I was using those fancy re-melting ice cubes in 1983. It was called plastic, and I’m fairly certain it was invented before then.

    Yeah, cept those fancy, re-melting, plastic cubes give the drink a plasticky taste. If they can do this without leaving any kind of funky taste, then rock on. As I said anyway, that would just be a nice bonus. The real awesomeness of the technique is for electronics.
