Waterproofing phones isn’t exactly a new idea. In fact, manufacturers in Japan debuted this technology years ago. But just because the phones were waterproof didn’t mean they were clean or bacteria-free.
Hence, Japanese smartphone producer Kyocera’s latest product: a washable phone. The company says the phone is designed to work in a variety of environments and, if it gets dirty, you can easily wash it clean.
Kyocera reportedly managed to create this soap-proof phone by finding a better way to seal the device. For now, the smartphone is only available in Japan.
SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Could a washable phone be the next great thing? Is this a big win for germaphobes everywhere?
