Video: Motorola Shows Off Splash Guard Coating on the XYBOARD


In other non-Galaxy Nexus related news, how about that splash coating that Motorola is putting on all of their products these days? If you were looking for a device that has been released when it was supposed to and not delayed 10 times can withstand a beer spill or a quick splash of your child’s juice, you may want to think about the DROID XYBOARD or RAZR. In the video above, Moto demos their water resistant coating, while reminding you that just one droplet can ruin it all.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Anyone tried putting Rain-X on their phones? I’m sure it wouldnt last as long, but might be the same effect

    • Dylan Blom

      pretty sure it would wear off after a while because it is just a thin wax coating. and after touching it for a day it would completely be gone

    This coating rubs off in a few weeks.

    Motorola once again doing hardware right . . . now we just need the hardware guys to start convincing the software guys to give the people what they want.

      Owww you are not satisfy with their new moto UI. I do not care if ICS comes in 4 to 5 months. I will enjoy the second best skin, which moto has it right now 🙂

        I actually rather like the stock UI on the RAZR; I just want the option of running vanilla or, at the very least, of flashing my own kernel. That encrypted signature is the real killer.

    That’s pretty sweet stuff. I’ve always thought that with all TS devices it should be easier to make them water proof. I guess water resistant is a step in the right direction

    the music sounds like it was stolen from the social network’s film score

    The music is straight out of an 80s workout VHS video…

    Can it withstand being shi* on?

      Well, Moto did that by encrypting the bootloader’s signature, so I guess so.

      For serious, though, I already dropped my RAZR in the snow will zero ill effects (other than my heart stopping for a minute or so).

  • I guarantee someone bitches about this.. and makes some snooty anti-motorola remark and then probably finishes with a I WANT MY GALAXY NEXUS remark.

    freagin nerdsheep.

  • Ike

    They should use a Never Wet coating. That stuff is crazy.

  • If only that tablet had a name that wouldn’t make me embarrassed to say it in front of others…

  • Cool just tried this with my Razr! Now where is my Nexus without nano-coating?

  • Zebra

    Now if only Moto wouldn’t design their products to be all cornered/jagged and ugly.

      You are clueless.

    I wish my Xoom had this. Can I send it in to Moto for an upgrade?

  • Shaggygobie

    Interesting, but where can I buy this coating myself? That way I can put it in my own devices. It’s got to be available to the public..

    • Earl Echols

      Probably not since the process requires the product to be put inside a vacuum chamber hit with plasma, then a monomer coating…
