Nanotech Solutions to Nanoimportant Problems

After nanopants, and nano golf balls comes the nano umbrella which despite the misleading name does claim to keep you dry all over. The NanoNuno® umbrella uses the well known lotus effect (a coating of nano structured material) to keep itself clean and of course water just beads up and rolls off, just like a conventional umbrella.

While its difficult to dry normal umbrellas with a couple of shakes, I’m not convinced that having a damp umbrella in the hallway is a sufficiently annoying to make me dash out and spend fifty pounds on a slighlty drier version.
