It sounds more like a magic spell than a new technology--a dirt-repelling coating. Spray it on glass, metal, or plastic and: that's it! Completely simple and the surface stays clean. Developed by the spin-off company Chamelic from the University of Leeds in the UK, the nanoscopic layer produces a hydrophilic surface that works indoors and out. Several industries have shown an interest in purchasing the unique product.

Implications - Having a clean car all year round would be a dream come true for many people. Also having constantly clean windows in your home would be absolutely fabulous! The dirt-repelling coating would definitely make many person's lives a lot easier and a lot cleaner.
