    • First time in my life I read a comment like this, I used to like that tv show.

    • “Aur nauurrr”

  • “Im hydrophobic” “What? Your afraid of water?!” “No it’s afraid of me”

  • As a citizen of a tropical country, which rains most of the time, I really need this in my wholr body system.

  • Silver surfer❌ Silver diver. ✅

  • I'm really interested in this, looking forward!

  • the pool for people who have forgotten their towels again😂

  • That one unemployed friend on a tuesday

  • Bro got the waterproof water

  • Okay, but think of how you could use this. Rain gear? Yeah, the water literally doesn't stick to you at all, so you actually stay fully dry. Military? If you made a suit covered in this, you could infiltrate via water, and barely make a sound. Think about it. Most of the sound from moving in water, is the sound of water droplets coming off of you. Water slides. Coat a water slide in this stuff. It would reduce the friction drastically. Even. Faster. Slide.

  • Oh my god this would be amazing to go swimming. I am very tactile avoidant when it comes to water on my skin especially after leaving the water and having to dry off so this would be so awesome.

  • This idea literally popped into my head a few days back, and now it’s randomly in my feed.

  • This would’ve solved like every single issue for the mermaids in H2O.

  • Yo I’ve been hella researching aerogel, so awesome to see someone finally did this.

  • Heard its just fantastic for the skin!

  • "Aight, let's wash off the aerogel" Famous last words before going insane

  • The sound and camera filter makes this look like backrooms footage.

  • 1900s: “by 2024 i bet we’ll have flying cars” 2024: “waterproof skin take it or leave it

  • 10 years from now: 'of course we had no idea aerogel was wildly carcinogenic'

    • PFAS anyone?!

    • Silica aerogel isn't chemically very hazardous, but easily reduces to irritant dust, or on water just goes from floating to disintegrating as the pores saturate. This isn't that, unless in small fragments to puff up some dominant sealant or binder. But, what is being demonstrated here? (See the other thread with discussion of possible molecules for active and carrier/inert components.)

    • @@Em-jc7ctsoap has a hydrophobic and hydrophilic side in its molecules, meaning the oil part sticks to the oil/ most if not all hydrophobic molecules, and the hydrophilic side sticks to the water, washing it away That’s why your skin is dry after washing

  • Subnautica fans when they make aerogel :

  • This feels like Flint Lockwood making a raincoat

  • Camera below water: 14k Camera above water: 188p

  • I want to know how well does it insulate. Yes there an air gap which will help keep you warm a little, but for how long. How quick is the conduction of heat through that gel into the water? And is this something that will eventually dissolve or fall away as you move through the water? Or could this be used similar to a dry suit.

  • I feel like we could use this effect for a movie

  • "Really weird" is the best description of this topic and video.

    • Would you not sweat or would it just bead an roll like rain x? I can't sweat on 52% of my skins total surface area and it's a real bummer as that it feels like I get hot and just can't disapate the heat if I don't take corrective actions quickly. I sweat extra on the places I can sweat but it's ineffective.

  • Aerogel... May the wonders of chemistry never cease.

  • I’m curious to know if this has any effect on how easy it is to move through water. It probably has little to zero effect though since the effort required depends more on the fluid density than anything else

  • Those dreams where you’re stuck in a pool but can’t figure out why you don’t feel the water:

    • Then you piss on yourself😮‍💨😮‍💨

  • Devices should have this.

  • Coming out of the water like this is gonna make some good cinematic moments

    • You have to go slow when you come out . That’s why they do the shots in reverse if they need someone coming out the water dry

  • could this be used to prevent hypothermia?

  • This could be a really cool special effect in a movie or tv show for some sci fi, fantasy, horror, etc scene involving an other worldly body of water

    • I had the exact same thought. Or film someone like this then transpose it to a different location so they look semi tranlucent or something.

    • fr

    • yeah cus when i first saw his foot go underwater i thought i could see his bones

    • I feel like it would be more expensive than conventional tricks or cgi. The coating in its current state is very fragile, which is why he's trying not to move too much. Depending on how long the shoot is and how awkward the movement is they might need to reapply it multiple times. And who knows what the health-effects would be since it means water is also locked into your skin ie: you can't sweat

    • They did something cool like that in the abyss but was that they were breathing water. Not the same but similar cool effect still find it such a great part to a movie and it based on real science.

  • That is trippy lol. water just rolls over him.

  • Anything is possible ❤

    • ​@@cinemaatrium3863When you are wet, you get colder.

    • ​@@cinemaatrium3863 I mean aerogel is one of the best insulation materials so... Who knows

    • If it creates an air cushion around him, air can act as an insulator. Sub zero temps, probably not, uncomfortable temps, probably would work.

  • The air layer has me thinking what if you coat the underside of a boat/etc with it? Testing on swimsuits has been promising so seems that hydrophobic nature decreases drag coefficient in water somewhat

  • *Alexa, add aerogel to my shopping list.*

  • Cats want to know more about this

  • I thought the silica fibers in aerogel were super sharp and could cut up your skin?

  • So that's how all the videogame characters do it

  • This brings the argument of “Are u wet if you’re underwater” to a whole new meaning

    • Rather, it allows that to be an argument in the first place.

    • I wasn't aware of this argument

    • Who have you been arguing with about being wet underwater? 🫧 O.o

    • If you're in a submarine you're not wet.
