A shoe made of Hydrophobic Material! I tried posting an awesome gif a few days ago of something else to do with hydrophobic material, but for some reason it didn’t work, so this will have to do. Sorry :(

But anyway - The molecules that coat this shoe are Hydrophobic, that means that they basically ‘repel’ water molecules, while we are only just mastering this, nature developed it billions of years ago - Our cell walls are also made of molecules with similar properties!

Cool! Cool cool cool.

"The shoe isn’t actually made of a hydrophobic material but is coated in a hydrophobic spray called NeverWet made by Ross Nanotechnology. youtube.com/watch?v=7is6r6zXFDc
