MIT create anti-fogging, glare-free, self-cleaning glass


Researchers at MIT have developed a new surface texture that, when applied to glass, produces a kind of glass that removes reflections, is free of glare, doesn’t fog, and has a surface that causes water droplets to bounce off like rubber balls, drawing whatever dirt on the surface with them. So I’m thinking goggles, goggles, goggles (yes, I know, we don’t use glass in our goggles, but if they can invent this, they better get at inventing the other thing also).

  1. Glass would be fine for goggles, as long as it was laminated onto plastic inside, such that if it cracked, none would flake off – just like a windscreen in fact.
