Waterproof and Germ Proof
What if all you needed to pack for your summer vacation was a comfortable T-shirt that kept you dry if it rained, and fought off germs, too? Nanotechnology could lead to lightweight clothing that’s waterproof and germ proof. Some nanotechnologists are working on ways to make paints, roof tiles, and other surfaces that can stay dry and clean themselves, just as the lotus leaf does. To come up with new materials with what they call the “lotus effect,” researchers are working from the molecular level up.
