Your average smartphone is a clever little gadget (hence the name). They've become our music players, our cameras, our organisers. They even make phone calls!

It doesn't matter which brand you go for, they all make our lives more fun, faster and generally just a bit easier to manage. But they all have one common enemy – the elements.

Yes, you can clad your prize possession in a chunky rubber case to keep the worst of it at bay, but it does tend to alter the aesthetics a little bit, doesn't it?

But now, courtesy of you can get your phone waterproofed and nobody will notice the difference.

Liquipel works by coating the entire phone, inside and out, with a water repellant "nano" coating. Once coated, they claim your phone will even work when fully submerged (although I won't be trying that just yet…).

You have to send your phone to them, and it currently costs $59 US, but that's surely a small price to pay when you consider the alternative.
