Super-hydrophobic coating is super-weird

Witchcraft!

It reminds me of the “plasma polymer” coating developed some years ago by DSTL, Britain’s defence research organisation. I wonder if the technologies are ┬árelated?

    That is pretty damn cool, especially the glass with the centre left untreated!

    I wonder if it’s food-safe?

    From the looks of it, it’s not terribly durable (the concrete chute wouldn’t likely stay that way; you can see flaws in the coating on some of the demos) so things like windshields aren’t a safe bet.

    However, it’s still mondo cool.
