98 Water-Friendly Inventions

From Rainy Day Dresses to Element-Enduring Electronics

— August 17, 2011 — Tech
Products are continually being improved by manufacturers; however, the demand for water-friendly or waterproof pieces is a continuous factor in the world of tech gadgets. With the amount of money that people invest in their electronics, something as simple and common as natural elements should not render them useless. As more and more people are exploring, travelling and vacationing, it is becoming increasingly important to have products that are strong and weather-proof.

Waterproof electronics, which allow you to either swim or shower with your electronics, connects consumers to their products on a deeper level. These water impervious products are not only beneficial for someone seeking the water specifically, but also for people that are caught in the rain. For example, the rainy day fashions are great to have on hand when the weatherman misses a heavy rainfall.
