Onwards march the waterproof circuits.
How many people have dropped their mobile phone in the toilet, a puddle, in a sink full of water, accidentally fed it to their geese, ducks or goldfish?
And then, in a serious brainfart moment … turn it on … poof.
$1000, and a wish that your insurance will cover it … if you have insurance.
Now a thing of the past …
A couple of aussies have invented a the plastic circuit … and it can even be recycled plastic.
This is wonderful for two reasons, firstly that the plastic circuit boards use less energy to create in the first place (not to mention can be manufactured from recycled plastics) and can also BE recycled afterwards.
Secondly, the Disposal Method (incineration) for current PCB circuit boards is very environmentally unfriendly & leaves lots of nasty chemicals for everyone to breathe.
Dreams of burning Blurays, or just watching the latest hit movie, while waiting for the perfect wave, on your surfboard … is not far away
