Dr. Coulson took 2 towels, one with and one without this technology. The first towel gets soaked, while the second one repelled the water. In fact, it beaded up like the towel was plastic.
The idea would be to dip the end product (or electronics) in this technology. This can be applied to clothing, to the point of Military use where it protects from chemical attack.
Adidas, Kswiss and other companies have applied this technology already.
At this time it’s a commercial grade product, so you cannot coat your electronics just yet.
