Socks are always clean

Chinese engineers have created a special fabric coating made of titanium dioxide with self-cleaning properties and the ability to kill bacteria. This material can be used to create, for example, super-socks: always clean; no washing required, which means that the second sock will no longer be lost in the washing machine. Holding them in the sun for awhile will get rid of stains. Additionally, the antibacterial properties of the coating ensure skin health and absence of foot odor.

Design predator We already applying nanotechnology in fabric to have self cleaning fabrics it's reality not prediction any more 25 Feb 2019
Fredo San No profits, no product... 06 Feb 2019
Matthew Mayberry I kinda agree with Fredo San, the thing is, theres alot of High Tech products "from the future" out right now. and while I can agree to a prediction that they will exists, I can't predict them becoming universally common household products because most tech items will be prohibitively expensive, and I don't see captialism changing over the next 50 years without some sort of major "systems crash" 06 Feb 2019
Davidchkhenkeli Seems very realistic 06 Feb 2019
Devin McLaughlin Very cool idea! However, I don't think they will be invented by the Chinese. 06 Feb 2019
Daniel ain't stuff like that causes cancer? 06 Feb 2019
Kaspersky Lab visitor at Starmus 2017 This technology is almost with us now. The big change may be having access to sunlight (a garden) or having UV "washing machines" to do the laundry. 06 Feb 2019
Adan V I second Fredo San. Companies are always looking for ways for you to spend more money on their product. It would be inocent to say "yes" to this idea but in reality it would be total failure. 06 Feb 2019
Raptor1324 i have to agree with fredo 06 Feb 2019
