An inventor from Colorado thinks he's found a way to fix your waterlogged cellphone or iPad.
Adam Cookson and his partners at TekDry have developed a machine that dries a variety of electronics and brings them back to life. It's a box with a small drawer of metallic beads that slowly dries a device without damaging it.
The technology was recently highlighted during an appearance Cookson and his partner Craig Beinecke made on the ABC TV series Shark Tank, where they secured $500,000 in investment money.
Denver-based TekDry has joined forces with Staples stores nationwide to offer the technology to customers. Staples charges $70 for the service.
Adam Cookson spoke with CPR's Andrea Dukakis.
