Here's a liquid that is used to put out fires that a computer can be totally emersed in.

I figured the evaporation rate might be a problem or some other factor but it was interesting to see a computer emersed in liquid and still operate.

And who'd expect the news would come from Good Morning America? :lol:

I'm wondering about the power supply and the battery and if they can be fully drowned (and be kept in working conditions). That would be amazing!

I saw this on T.V. but not Good Morining America and the guy not only put a laptop under the liquid but he put a LCD display in it and it didn't bother the screen. 0 conductivity in the liquid.

While we may not be able to pattent the mixture for it's use to put out fires, one of us sure could go ahead and pattent CF3CF2C(O)CF(CF3)2 for PC cooling purposes. Just in case...ya know?
