I've spent the week at the TED conference, and had a chance to see a lot of really cool things. This was the coolest.
Mark Shaw was demoing his UltraTech technology. Water-repellent nano-technology. It comes in a spray bottle and can be easily applied to our DC brushless motors to prevent corrosion (or even being exposes to any water. It can alo be sprayed onto the electronics inside the chamber to protect them in case the tube implodes.
This is the miracle we never knew we needed. I think it changes a lot. I'm going to talk to Mark more today, and get a sense how else we may be able to use it.
Watch the demo (below) and let me know what questions I should ask Mark!
