HzO shows off factory-line waterproofing technology

HzO shows off factory-line waterproofing technology

HzO is a waterproofing technology for smartphones like the iPhone that won't be available to us (the consumers) but will be available to device manufacturers like Apple for use in the production process. (Whether Apple decides to make use of it -- or something similar -- is another story.) The thin coating, which they have named WaterBlock, once applied prevents water from coming in contact with the electronics inside the device, thus making it water resistant and giving you the ability to dunk it and not have worry.

If you're wondering whether it works or not, it surely seems to. Walking around CES 2012, I saw the HzO display with some devices sitting... underneath falling water, still fully functional, like it was nothing. People were using the phones, playing music, just like normal. Even with SIM card and battery exposed, an Android phone remained fully functional. There appeared to be zero damage to any of the electronics.

Again, there's no way to know if Apple will ever use something like this for the iPhone, but we sure hope they do.

Hands-on with the Octa WhaleTale & Vacuum Dock

Hands-on with the Octa WhaleTale & Vacuum Dock

Octa WhaleTail and Vacuum Dock is a tablet holder that suctions to the back and contours the hand very nicely. To get the back to stick on the iPad all you have to do is put it on there, give it a few pumps and it's on there, and rather firmly. Releasing the holder is pretty simple (once you get the hang of it) -- pull up slightly on the two tabs and then push them in, and off it comes. Also included is the WhaleTail which hooks onto the back of the Vacuum Dock which allows the tablet to be propped up and it also doubles as a security measure for when you are carrying your tablet around so it doesn't just fall right out of your hands.

Check out our live hands on from CES 2012.

Hands-on with the ZAGGkeys FLEX

The ZAGGkeys FLEX is a great Bluetooth keyboard that includes a case that ultimately doubles up as a stand for your iPhone or iPad. Generally portable keyboards are either awkwardly shaped or just to small but ZAGG has done a great job with the ZAGGkeys Flex, bringing a unit that is 90 percent of the size of a standard keyboard so it remains very easy and comfortable to type on without that annoying learning curve.
