Fort Wayne mentioned
Swell with pride and black people

I've never seen Fort Wayne mentioned online before. This is a new feeling. Is this what it feels like to finally feel relevant?

It doesn't work that well. The pressure of the huge amount of water on the side of a boat forces air out from the gaps eventually.

You sir just may have created the first hover boat
#259 - questionableferret (01/22/2015) [-]
Uh... this one hovers on water AND land.
#260 - weirddark (01/22/2015) [-]
Hmm, you're right. Probably would just become a boat shaped bouncy ball
User avatar #261 - questionableferret (01/22/2015) [-]
That's not how hydrophobic surfaces work. The surfaces don't repel water so much as water does not stick to it. Even in that .gif the reason the water is bouncing is probably more to do with the surface-tension of the water droplets than any force radiating outwards from the surface.

This doesn't mean that the metal can't get wet or that it would bounce about, it would just mean when the ship left the water it would stop being wet because the water wouldn't cling to it.

What would essentially be created would be a self-drying boat... which is honestly not very useful. No, this surface is more useful for surfaces that you really don't want to be wet, like the decks of boats (not the hulls), or electronic devices, but even then it would only be useful when used on devices that are so impeded by the problem of being wet that the price of coating it in a microscopically-laser-sculpted metal would provide enough convenience to be worth the excess cost.

It's cool, but honestly speaking it has less practical values than you might initially imagine. Perhaps to stop long-lasting outdoors electrical equipment from suffering water damage, or for use on meteorological equipment. That said, this could turn out to have wide-spread applications and I'm just not being imaginative enough, but for me this seems to be more interesting as a demonstration of the capabilities of modern technology and the possibilities to come than it is on its own merits.

I wanna make a body suit of it, and go swimming
User avatar #42 - Abortedwafflez (01/22/2015) [-]
Wouldn't you just sink to the bottom of the lake? If it's hydrophobic to that extent water would just move away from it rather than form around it.
#119 - Rascal (01/22/2015) [-]
i think you are all forgetting the metal part of this
User avatar #130 - Abortedwafflez (01/22/2015) [-]
Metal can float if it is displaced enough on top of the water. Most ships are aluminum and steel.
#76 - apurpleliger (01/22/2015) [-]
If the object is immersed in water, there should be less friction, but buoyancy doesn't depend on friction. It depends entirely on the amount of mass displaced. If the submarine is not heavier than water of the same volume, it will not be able to push the water out of the way and sink.
User avatar #44 - phantomseeker (01/22/2015) [-]
You're forgetting about upthrust, the force that moves shit upwards; the air in the sub is less dense than the water, so the sub would still have a force pulling it up
User avatar #45 - Abortedwafflez (01/22/2015) [-]
Do you mean sub as a submarine? If so, i'm speaking of just a normal boat minus the motor. If it still remains hydrophobic and buoyancy doesn't kick in and floats, the water might form around the boat rather than normally sitting on it. If it passes the lip of the boat, at that point it should just begin to sink.
User avatar #47 - phantomseeker (01/22/2015) [-]
Yeah, I'd just read the comment about the sub by letrollzor Sorry for unnecessary mention when I answered. I'm not entirely sure about a boat, but when you look at the facts, it's still displacing water so it still has upthrust. The water is still pressing with the same pressure, so upthrust would be the same as normal. The only difference is that there's another layer between boat and water. I imagine it would still float normally. Though, on the topic of forces, if it was moving it wouldn't technically be 'touching' the water (assuming the material was absolutely perfect), so when it moves forward it would push the water aside, like an aircraft does with air. So, technically, you can't make a boat using the (again, assuming it creates a perfect layer of air) material, because it would be classed as an aircraft. I think. Or at least a hovercraft.
User avatar #50 - Abortedwafflez (01/22/2015) [-]
Hmm. Probably. Let's hope they make an actual boat out of it. I imagine if you strap a motor onto it, it might just be a smooth ride assuming it floats.
User avatar #53 - phantomseeker (01/22/2015) [-]
It'd probably be smooth as fuck. The effects of waves would be dampened a lot, I think

Everything can be mass produced. Just need to put enough money into it, to make the process cheaper and more affordable, to advance the technology etc.
