Ross Technology sees your 'waterproof' and raises you 'superhydrophobic'

Posted By on Tue, Nov 15, 2011 at 8:33 AM


Call this the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Geek.com reports that Ross Technology Corp. has developed a liquid spray that repels water like nothing you've ever seen (probably).

The spray actually uses nanoparticles and is superhydrophobic. That means it repels water and keeps a surface completely dry and stain free. While it may keep steel dry, Ross also realized it could be sprayed on products to keep them clean, and also keeps objects free of bacteria and ice. The company even claims you can spray an iPhone with NeverWet and it becomes waterproof.

NeverWet is being turned into a consumer product and will see a release next year, but we should also start seeing it applied to products too. Shoes that can’t get dirty, ovens that don’t need cleaning, and clothes you never need to wash hopefully (a personal dream of mine).

Watch the video: There's a cool bit about stacking water molecules, besides other things that may make your head asplode.
