Swedish Company Developing Self-Cleaning Dishes (Video)

The Swedish research firm Innventia has teamed up with the Tomorrow Machine design team to develop dishes and silverware that NEVER require washing.

The secret is in the material: the dinnerware is coated with a layer of extremely hydrophobic (water-repelling) material which basically repels all water and dirt, allowing you to simply tip a plate on its side to clean it, for example.

Testing is under way to assure that the material is food-safe.

The original design was inspired by the water-repelling attributes of the lotus leaf.
