I was just going to buy one of those but you have to pledge $200 for a kick starter pre order campaign with no ship date listed. Price is a but steep and I don't feel comfortable sending them money without the product being shipped.

amazing things technology can create.
Yes kick starters are hit and miss. Sort of like gambling.
Looks like a stiff price. Maybe a one and done.

I looked at the tape measure web page and they have used Indian Army used ammo cans for only $75. I can buy US ammo cans for $20. So those must be really special…….right?

Omniphobic hull coatings

US Navy ONR sponsors development of omniphobic coating for ships

The potential of omniphobic hull coatings, which are under development by the US Navy’s Office of Naval Research, was perhaps the most obviously pertinent development. Omniphobic hull coatings would not only repel water (hydrophobia) but all manner of other substances, including oil. Griffin outlined how this technology could dramatically increase the efficiency of hulls and reduce costs.

“An omniphobic hull coating is currently being produced by the US Navy, but they are being a little secretive about it,” continued Griffin. “This technology has cut fuel costs by around 80 per cent when moving slowly and 40-50 per cent at faster speeds on an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer. Not only that, they found that is also made the US Navy’s destroyers much quieter.”

Rust oleum put out a spray paint type of coating that was omniphobic and it was really cool. You could spray your boots with it and pour oil on them and it would run right off.
