Undisputedly this video screams “advert” all over. However I found it to be one of the most interesting demo videos of the NeverWet product. They are working on a spray that covers objects with a water-repelling layer, similar to how water droplets flow down from the lotus flower. In science they are referring to this as superhydrophobic paint.
This is an interesting means of achieving something bigger. Protect your clothes and avoid getting sick? Protect your phone and avoid the device getting harmed by liquids? This company is also working on products for anti-icing, anti-corrosion and self-cleaning attributes. I can think of a lot of uses for this. Interesting enabler technology!
