Submerge Your Phone with Underwater Apps

One of The Verge's sponsors SONY recently posted an article on theverge.com showcasing "underwater apps" for their Xperia Z1S, a fully waterproof phone. Yeah, you read that right, underwater apps as in apps that respond to being submerged into water. A cringe worthy thought as we've all probably come very close to losing a phone by falling into a pool of water and then praying to a box of rice to magically suck up all the water. 

SONY partnered with app developers Motim and SoftFacade along with ad agency Wieden+Kennedy to develop the new technology for detecting submersion. The technology is based on sound waves similar to a submarine's sonar system. As an example, the article begins with an adorable video showcasing Goldie, one of the 6 underwater apps. SONY has also posted the source code on Github so it is open to being toyed around with.
