TITLE: Hydrophobic rubber
I think it would be cool to develop hydrophobic rubber for (bike)tyres. It would prevent water from sticking to the tyre. Now we get all wet and dirty when biking on wet roads because the water stick to the tyres when rolling. A hydrophobic rubber or coating would hopefully prevent that.
I have no background in chemistry and material science, so I don’t know if it is possible. But if it is feasible, it would not only be a cool hack, but also a useful product.
- people with background in chemistry, material science, or nano technology?
