Default Superhydrophobic spray means no more clothes to was

The toilet plunger application is cool.

You could use it for traveling. Bring to pair of socks and underwear, spray them with this stuff and you will be good the whole trip!

Superhydrophobic spray means no more clothes to wash
Nov. 12, 2011 (12:06 pm) By: Matthew Humphries

Ross Technology Corp is a company that specializes in steel products including non-slip flooring, security, and racks. For the tech enthusiast, that may sound a little boring, but then you hear about a byproduct of a solution they came up with to stop their steel products corroding.

Metal corrodes when it comes into contact with liquid such as water, so Ross engineers set about coming up with a coating to keep liquid away from the steel. What they ended up with is a silicon-based spray that not only kept steel dry, it could also be applied to many different surfaces and materials.

Rather than just concentrate on steel, Ross decided to create a new product based on the spray known as NeverWet, which we should all hopefully benefit from using soon.

One of the videos they dip an iPad and a notebook computer in NeverWet e-Coat then put in underwater.

That would be cool for your mobile phone.
