Though I've luckily never lost a device to liquid spillage, I've had more than my fair share of close calls, bumped coffee mugs and jostled beer bottles threatening to drench my beloved portable consoles. Luckily, I may soon have a surefire solution to my clumsiness.  The scientists at Liquipel, mocking god and his liquids with their titular creation, have created a nanocoating which completely repels the mighty H20 compound and all its electronic-frying powers. 

Right now the Liquipel coating treatment is only available for smartphones, charging about $60-$80 to dunk your device in whatever magic goo makes the technology work. But given the high price tag of the PS Vita, we've gotta say that we'd consider dummy-proofing our baby if given the chance. Or maybe to keep it from getting dunked we could put the Vita in a big box, and add a TV out so we won't risk the screen. And maybe a seperate control device could come out from the box, which could be replaced if damaged. The games too could be seperate, in case the memory card gets corrupted...

Wait...

Never mind.
