NEW TECHNOLOGY TO FIX YOUR WET PHONE
Have you ever dropped your phone in water? Or spilled water in your backpack? If you are the clumsy type like me, carrying around big water bottles all the time, this is a permanent risks factor in your life. The most important thing to remember is DONT SWITCH IT ON! I can’t stress this enough, because in that stressful moment, when you really would like to find out whether you ruined your device, this rule requires a lot of self-discipline. The best strategy is to take the battery out (if you can) and then leave it dry for two days in rice or silica and of course, hope for the best. They will soak up the water and your device will hopefully work again.
But recently , there is another way to solve this issue. A company called Tekdry in the US dries the wet gadgets in special machines that literally pull the water out of them in a vacuum chamber. The customers pay 70 dollars only it the case the procedure was successful, which is a fair price if we consider how much a new phone/ laptop would cost. “TekDry’s machines can dry phones in 30 minutes with an 80 percent success rate if you bring it under 48 hours of getting your phone wet.” Doesn’t it sound like a miracle?
Take a look! I really looks awsome:
This technology is pretty convincing, so as a business student, shouldn’t we consider opening a similar chain in Europe (or even Asia)? Although it sounds like a great opportunity, in a few years probably all our electronic devices will be waterproof. The IPhone 6s has gaskets around the edges and seals around important components to protect the phone from water damage and there are already countless waterproof electronic devices, so the technology already exists.
