New liquid-cooled Iceotope computer servers installed at the University of Leeds cuts energy used for cooling Internet servers by more than 80 percent. The whirring fans of traditional computers are replaced by the barely-audible trickle of liquid. The heat released can be piped out to radiators to warm a building. The developers say it could revolutionise the energy-hungry data centres that form the fabric of our online lives.

But don't we all know that liquid and electronics don't mix? Dr Jon Summers, from the University of Leeds' School of Mechanical Engineering, shows what happens when you put an iPhone in a beaker of the secret ingredient: 3M (TM) Novec (TM) liquid.

WARNING: The phone experiment shown in this video is intended to demonstrate the special qualities of the liquid used in the Iceotope server. Putting an electronic device in liquid can cause problems other than a short circuit. Liquid is likely to be trapped and may affect the functionality of the device (eg. screen dimming or ghosting, speaker problems).
