NASA Home & City Scavenger Hunt made us realize how much spinoff technology has taken part in our everyday life, yet it remains barely noticed.
Appreciating the NASA spinoffs - technology that has been brought down from space - we started to expedite for spinoffs ourselves, discovering 8 of them literally a foot from ourselves--we took pictures of everyday spinoffs and organized them in Adobe Sparks.
THEN, WE STARTED TO BRAINSTORM OUR OWN SPINOFF. THIS IS OUR FIRST SPINOFF ILLUSTRATION. JUST TO NOTE-WE DREW IT, NOT PRESCHOOLERS.
The first draft sketch of the easy-to-wash plate incorporates the basic hydrophobic nature of the mitigation technology, which can be used to create plates that food remnants does not stick to. The sketch illustrates the small-scale superhydrophobic surface keeping the water droplets in shape.
Personally, washing dishes has always been a bothersome chore that creeps onto subconscious annoyance after a pleasant meal. To relieve ourselves and the environment from washing dishes, we proposed self-cleaning dishes.
If you are wondering, "Aren't self-cleaning plates already in market?" Please click the button below to confirm NASA's advantage over its competitors. Successful self-cleaning dishes haven't appeared in market yet, but NASA's self-cleaning dishes can be the first.
