Dunk your phone

CityPress - - Opportunity index -

Most smart­phone users try very hard to keep their de­vices away from wa­ter. Sony has solved the catas­tro­phe of drop­ping one’s phone in the toi­let or pool by mak­ing its

Xpe­ria Z1S fully wa­ter­proof, and is now in­tro­duc­ing a suite of new apps to make dunk­ing your de­vice fun.

Sony part­nered with app de­vel­op­ers Mo­tim and SoftFa­cade to de­velop tech­nol­ogy that de­tects when the phone is sub­merged ... and turns that mo­ment of ter­ror into a game. Our favourite is the Goldie app, which is a cute fish that swims around your phone. Goldie looks like she’s having a good time in the wa­ter un­til you pull her out. Then she gasps and flops like, well, a fish out of wa­ter.

SOAK IT Get­ting your phone wet is no longer a thing to avoid
