Water Droplet Bouncing on a Superhydrophobic Carbon Nanotube Array


Water Droplet Bouncing on a Superhydrophobic Carbon Nanotube Array…


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Wonder what would happen if you covered a car with this.

  2. .. Or a marine vessel.

  3. Imagine the applications if this stuff wasn’t so ridiculously expensive! Hats, jackets, umbrellas, and shoes guaranteed to never get wet. Water bottles that always give up all their fluid because there is no adhesion between the liquid and the bottle to keep drops inside.

    Of course, that is all frivolous stuff when you realize that carbon nanotubes pass electrons much faster than silicon and will easily boost computing speeds tenfold once the technology becomes prevelant.

  4. I want camping gear coated with this stuff.

    “carbon nanotubes pass electrons much faster ” — Is that because they just slide thru? 😉

  5. How about the hulls of boats? Reduced friction with the water would reduce power requirements and thus carbon emissions.

  6. How about the backs of urinals and shower walls and bathtub surfaces? This would drastically reduce the amount of cleaning needed, and might make flushless toilets a possibility, reducing water usage.
