There. So all it is doing is to provide a water repelling and oil repelling surface. The droplets and oily grime will still need gravity's help (therefore the suitable body contours required) to reach the ground.

Also what about DUST?
I thought this will also have some electrostatic means to repelling dust ... can't read about it.

Nissan needs to get this technology to India as soon as possible.
Would be really beneficial while driving down the muddy north Indian roads.

Default The Car That Doesn't Get Dirty!


Found this on NDTV, I know we had discussed about this, but I could not find the link and hence creating a new thread. This is a wonderful technology and I wish it gets to production soon enough.


Mods- Please merge this to a existing thread if there is one.

I don't really have a problem with a dirty car, but can someone come up with a dent-repellent paint?!

This would be an expensive coating though, last I read it was somewhere about ~400-500 pounds.
