There's a way to make glass glare free and anti fog and clean itself now, as discovered by researchers. Created by depositing thin layers of material on the surface of the glass, and selectively etching the material away, the end result is a tiny cones on the glass taller than they are wide that allow the glass to prevent reflections and also repel water.
Developed by researchers at MIT, they hope the technology will eventually be used in things like smartphones, televisions, or even windows of cars and buildings. Good bye to screen protectors?
The researchers also hope to use the technology in solar panels, as they lose much of their efficiency as they start to become dirty. The glass would work better because of its self cleaning and wouldn't accumulate dust and dirt. The glass would also offer an advantage to anti glare properties, allowing more light to be transferred on the surface instead of it being reflected away,
Wired has published a very nice feature on Kip Thorne and the science behind Chris Nolan's Interstellar. Kip Thorne is one of the world's most celebrated theoretical physicists. He and Nolan worked together to ensure depictions of scientific happenings in the film are as accurate as possible. Read more
