Spray-on Clothes

I hadn't originally planned on updating my blog daily, but due to the unprecedented amount of traffic I seem to be receiving, it seems that a second post is the least I can do to entertain my followers.

First, the funny.



BritaNick, if you've never been exposed to them before, are a comedy group the likes of which we've seen before. If you like, say, the Whitest Kids u Know, or Derrick Comedy, these guys will also probably manage to tickle your funny bone.

Now, for the science.

Remember this episode of Futurama? You should. While perhaps at first this would provide a tiny chuckle at the "all purpose spray" joke, science is well on it's way to making it a reality. Apparently, scientists have developed spray-on clothes. I'm not joking. Apparently it's made out of tiny fibers that are mixed into a solvent, that's sprayed from either a can or high pressure spray gun. It may be a bit trivial right now, especially seeing the rough way the cloth develops, but it can be seen as the vanguard to many other exciting, and more practical, applications, such as spray-on bandages.

Currently, the fabric has wool, acrylic, and linen varieties.

Reader's Question: Was it just me, or did that scientist in that video sound more like a fashion designer than a scientist?

  2. Best way to get your friend laid.

    Also, just so you know, that guy in the video was a fashion designer, not the scientist behind the product.

    That would certainly explain it. That's what I get for assuming, though.
