Silic spill-proof t-shirt let’s you dine like an animal
Spilling while eating is the most irritating thing that can happen out in public and embarrasses you like hell. But an American student Aamir Patel is all determined to change that with the Silic T-shirt that uses Hydrophobic Nanotechnology, embedded into the polyester fabric itself at microscopic level. Unlike some water-proofing sprays and treatments that can give you cancer, this new innovation is sans any such dangers. With billions of silica particles bonded into the fabric, this unique t-shirt forces the water-based liquid to form a 150-degree sphere and roll off without bonding to the fabric. In addition to that the air that forms between the liquid and fabric magically averts any liquid-based beverages and prevent any spillage.
Not only stains but the t-shirt is perfectly made for evaporating sweat in the air, meaning that you won’t have any foul odor after intensive workouts too. It is no surprise that Aamir’s Silic t-shirt has managed to achieve the funding goal on Kickstarter by almost 8 times with over 3 weeks still to go.
# According to Aamir Patel
Most liquid molecules will not be able to touch the fabric because of a microscopic layer of air that forms between the liquid and fabric. This is because the fabric is layered with billions of silica particles. Water based liquids will form a 150 degree sphere and roll right off! As a result, this barrier protects your shirt from potential accidents.
Silic t-shirt is expected to go on sale from May 2014 for an estimated price of £30 and anti-stain properties take on 80 cycles of washing.
