Seal Shield, which specialises in producing waterproof gadgets, has been busy building a mobile phone which it says will withstand the ravages of an average household dishwasher.
The phone, which is called the Seal Cell, was on show at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and a spokesperson said that the idea behind it was as much to do with cleanliness as it was to do with ruggedness, as many people are apparently concerned with the microscopic bacteria which can be harboured by non-washable mobiles.
As well as being totally waterproof, the Seal Cell can use two SIM cards simultaneously and also sports a two megapixel camera, touchscreen interface and GPS for navigation in the most severe conditions imaginable.
This phone can even double up as a walkie-talkie and the camera's flash moonlights as a torch, which should add to its outdoors appeal still further.
Expect to see the Seal Cell in the first half of the year, although its creators have not as yet given any details as to the planned pricing of this mobile phone.
