Nanocoating could eliminate foggy windows and lenses

"Foggy windows and lenses are a nuisance, and in the case of automobile windows, can pose a driving hazard. Now, a group of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) may have found a permanent solution to the problem. The team has developed a unique polymer coating — made of silica nanoparticles — that they say can create surfaces that never fog." This is pretty cool stuff here! You will be seeing more and more of these cool nano-tech stories in the news in days to come. This is a going to be a huge, HUGE future R&D niche that will lead to many very cool inventions!! ~t
