Carbon nanotube dye may put a capacitor in your shorts

How would you like it if your phone started charging whenever you dropped it into your pocket? That may eventually be possible, thanks to a carbon nanotube-based ink that can turn many common fabrics into conductors, or even components of a charge-storing supercapacitor. These won't be showing up in a clothing store near you anytime soon, however, as ensuring that the fabrics only direct the charge to appropriate devices and not, say, to a sensitive body part will be a separate engineering challenge.

Self-cleaning effects for textiles

News picture

The lotus plant's extraordinary ability to keep itself clean by means of the ultrafine surface structures on its leaves has led to Buddhism's holy flower becoming rather a celebrity in our latitudes, too. Yet we can also observe this self-cleaning effect on our own indigenous plants such as the nasturtium, reed or lady's mantle: water droplets just roll off the surface of their leaves, taking particles of dirt along with them.
Learning from nature's example, science has recognized that it is not the smoothest possible surfaces but those with structures measuring some dozens of nanometers that repel dirt and water most effectively.
