    So is the production of this coating of microcrystalline titanium oxide particularly eco-freindly? Or does it naturally occur in fennel? ;)

    Saying that, I could really do with the stuff on my car right now.

    How often can this reaction occur before it "runs out"? Can it occur again and again, indefinitely?

    Cool stuff. Although it might put the window washers of the world out of business eventually. ;) Now if I could only get some of this stuff put in the back window of my truck and have it clean itself when the dog slobbers all over it. That's like rain, right?

    I read an article in school about two years ago talking about a guy in Japan who had developed a paint that could mimic photosynthesis and turn CO2 into O2. Perfect for dense urban areas that could really use some air cleaing.

    This is great news for those of us that don't like to clean windows. It will come in very handy for the all glass outdoor restroom. Hopefully they can still use the 2 way glass along with this invention. Otherwise the view won't be the same. :D
