  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.
