Leave it to the brains at MIT to improve something that most of us take for granted: glass.
Their “Fog-free glass” is a nano-textured, multifunctional variation that resists fogging, virtually eliminates glare, and self-cleans. In the video below, you see water droplets bouncing off the superhydrophobic surface without leaving a, well, droplet. Imagine the applications on our gadgets and gizmos, not to mention what this can do to the solar power industry that is in desperate need of improve efficiency with their equipment.
The rumors of repelling zombies are unconfirmed.
