DailyDirt: Like Water (Or Oil) Off A Duck's Back…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

People seem to be amazed when water rolls right off the surface of something because it’s not the usual thing that happens. Everything gets wet, so when something doesn’t, it looks pretty cool. But hydrophobic materials are actually useful, too. Here are just a few projects looking into materials that repel liquids like water.

The OLD ass Art Bell "Show me" model

Look I don’t give a shit how much money it cost you to make this invention.

But I have one question, when can I Pick up a SPRAY can with a warranty and spray say um… something reasonable… um, my piece of crap 150 watt mono panel with it’s electronics.

I cut that piece of shit MDF or whatever the fuck cannon plug that solar “bend over for the cost” industry thinks it can get me to buy, wtf 10 of one side of the plug for $40? fuck you, I use inline splice with screwdrivers now bitch!

So my parents or one of them was from Show Me State or nearby.

Show me, spray up some electronics say outdoor solar panel electronics.

PS for the low brows, fsck the panels, they ARE waterproof! ja Idjiotz. How about that 3 KW inverter? Make that waterproof?
