I always worry about what it will do to me health wise! I think I'll wait a year or two! But it looks pretty cool!

I suspect there is a damn good reason why Teflon tires have never caught on, probably related to to the fact that you do actually want your tires to be sticky.

Good point again..

I was thinking that the knobs will wear out and the substance will be left only on the casing, but you are right still slippery down there..

this shit scares the hell out of me. accidentally spill some on your skin, what happens ?

wind blows while applying, it's in your eyes. shit.

digestive system, game oooooover.

maybe there is a counter-agent that dissipates it reallllly fast and turns it into molasses ?

I think you'll live. Just looked over their website and it looks to be a two-part polymer mix, which is water-based. I'm not buying the whole nanotech hype. According to their website, it's not durable on fabrics. Looks like it has applications for me around the house, but I wouldn't want it near my vehicles

If it doesn't last on fabric i can only think about using it on the inside of the toilet bowl.

Coat the bottom of your boat with it.

Is it also a friction modifier? Spray roads and sidewalks with it if tires can still grip the surface. That'll keep rain, snow, ice, etc. from creating a hazard.

Harvard students came up with a similar product. just google non stick bottle. Using only FDA approved items, it is food safe. Called "Liqui-Glide".
