How to save an iphone

I just had the best idea for an iphone application. Go ahead steal my idea but give me credit, and some money.
A friend of mine just lost his iphone to the washing machine.
First of all, I can’t imagine why they’re not waterproof. They have no moving parts and there’s no externally accessible battery compartment, I can’t imagine why it’s not waterproof.
But anyway. Here’s my idea: an app that uses the motion sensor (and maybe even the camera) to detect when it’s being bounced around (as in a washing machine) and sends you an email saying “Help! I think I’m in the washing machine! Save me!”
If you have any amount of home automation set up, the iphone could power off the washing machine itself and save itself.
Just an idea there.
