MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- An Australian startup is using a patented nanotechnology to create 'hydrophobic' chef jackets and aprons. Fabricor says this means uniforms that stay clean for longer, and saving time and money. The company was started because cofounder and MasterChef mentor Adrian Li, was frustrated with keeping his chef jackets and aprons clean. "As a chef I find it really difficult to keep my chef jacket white, and we like our jackets...

geckos defy gravity
2014-08-13 05:18:11

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The uncanny ability of geckos to adhere to nearly any surface and even walk on ceilings is the result of a biological mechanism in their toes that the lizards can instantly turn on or off, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the Journal of Applied Physics. Geckos, along with spiders and some insects, appear to defy gravity with the way they are able to scale walls and cling to high surfaces, the Oregon...

Quenching World's Water And Energy Crises One Droplet At A Time

Sarah Bates, National Science Foundation In the Namib Desert of Africa, the fog-filled morning wind carries the drinking water for a beetle called the Stenocara. Tiny droplets collect on the beetle's bumpy back. The areas between the bumps are covered in a waxy substance that makes them water-repellant, or hydrophobic (water-fearing). Water accumulates on the water-loving, or hydrophilic, bumps, forming droplets that eventually grow too big to stay put, then roll down the waxy surface....

Does Water Always Completely Wet Water?
2014-07-16 03:09:31

Science China Press The molecular scale behavior of water at a solid/liquid interface holds fundamental significance in a diverse set of technical and scientific contexts, ranging from the efficiency of oil mining to the activity of biological molecules. Recently, it has become recognized that both the physical interactions and the surface morphology have significant impact on the behavior of interfacial water, including the water structures and wetting properties of the surface. In a...

Water Bounces Like A Ball Off Super Waterproof Surfaces
2014-05-21 03:52:47

Brigham Young University Research on super-hydrophobic surfaces could result in cleaner, more efficient power In a basement lab on BYU’s campus, mechanical engineering professor Julie Crockett analyzes water as it bounces like a ball and rolls down a ramp. This phenomenon occurs because Crockett and her colleague Dan Maynes have created a sloped channel that is super-hydrophobic, or a surface that is extremely difficult to wet. In layman’s terms, it’s the most extreme form of...

The Water strider, (also known as: Skater, Pond Skater, Jesus Bug, Water Skeeter, water scooter, water skater, and Skimmer) is any of a number of predatory insects in the family Gerridae that rely on the surface tension of water to walk on top of it. They live on the surface of ponds, slow streams, marshes, and other quiet waters and can move very quickly (up to 1 m/s) over the surface of water. Aquarius remigis (formerly known as Gerris remigis) is one of the species in Gerridae known as...
