    re spray-on glass, “sounds like the new asbestos” is one of the comments on the article, and that was my first thought too.

    seems to me that pretty much every “nano” material i’ve read about has the same problem – perfectly safe as long all the nanoparticles stay stuck together, which, apparently they never do. you don’t if anyone’s got the definitive answer on this do you?

    spray-on glass. Sigh.

    article is from 2010. Still no spray-on glass. My salty tears fall onto my desk, but do not slide off, they persist.
