MIT Scientists Invent Self Cleaning Glass

This film shows an earlier version of water repelling glass.
Researchers working with nanotechnology at MIT have invented a new kind of glass. The possibilities for the new glass seem endless. Because of the special non-glare, self-cleaning surface engineered by the scientists, always clean car headlamps, more efficient solar panels, an end to window washing all seem possible.

Of course, like many new inventions, this nano-glass will likely take some years to filter down to every day use.
The description of the work is found in  MIT NEWS.

In a nod to Mother Nature, the scientists gave credit for their inspiration to Nature’s structures such as lotus leaves and insect eyeballs.
