NeverWet superhydrophobic spray (upcoming technology)

Ross Nanotechnology's NeverWet superhydrophobic spray-on coating - YouTube

Very cool emerging technology! Apologies if this isn't the right place for this...Would be awesome for shells/boots/etc, especially up here in the Northwest in rain.

That's amazing, I wonder what the process is and how much it costs. Could revolutionize recreational outerwear, I sure as hell would like to wear snowboarding gear that did that. I would actually be stoked to put it on some of my normal clothes as well.

Posted about this a while back. The consumer version should be out by mid 2012. Though there is no word on if it is breathable too.

did some research on this (wikipedia); basicly it adds a silica nano structure to the fibers in the clothing or on the surface of rubber that reduces the contact area of the fluid, this in turn reduces the friction between the fluid and the material and the fluid just falls off. cool shit maynard

Nano tech is cool, but scary. In graphite and plastics, the carbon nano tubes, (microscopic), if shattered, cause some nasty cancers if inhaled accidentally.

This must be some form of teflon, in a nano application. Scary good.
