HTC makes great phones, there’s no denying that. They’ve had a lot of popular devices over the years that have really captured people, whether they’re running Android or Windows Mobile (although we all pretty much know that HTC HD2 owners love replacing Windows with Android anyways).
In the video above, HTC takes you through a process they call Mico Arc Oxidation, a really cool and innovative way of treating their hardware. This effort will increases durability in their new HTC One S device.
Micro Arc Oxidation, despite HTC presenting it as something innovative from them, is a Russian technology, also going by the name of Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO).
What’s revolutionary about the process, is it’s method of producing hard and corrosion resistant coatings on all sorts of metals, including Al, Mg, Ti, and more. It’s very effective for protective and decorative coatings on aluminium profiles and other constructive elements, what is important for vehicles and other forms of construction, such as boats, aircrafts, siding for buildings, roofs, and even window frames. The method works well, possessing high output, and a wide range of possibilities. It’s also quite environmentally safe, using the effect of forming micro-arc plasma discharges on the surface of the unit.
HTC, for examples, zaps it with over 10,000 volts of energy, “almost like lighting striking the phone.” HTC’s One S (yes, they’ve added an “S” to the end as well), will surely be very strong, and durable. This technology has been used for satellites by NASA, and was also developed for race cars.
The HTC One S isn’t out on the market yet, and you’d have to wonder: With this sort of technology going into the body of the device, what will it cost consumers?
