Dry, Wet, NeverWet - Materials Innovation


NeverWet - The spray.

The product is NeverWet, and promises that when sprayed on any item, the object would be immune to water and other liquids.

It pretty much does exactly what it promises; spray the coating on cloth, metal, wood, and the item becomes impervious to water and other liquids. Demonstrations show chocolate syrup over a white canvas shoe and the syrup slides off the surface, leaving the shoe unstained. Inventor Andy Jones, president of "Nano Technology" - "I sprayed my iPhone with NeverWet, submerged it in a foot of water for 30 minutes, took it out and it was good to go."  

The only problem was that you couldn't buy it.  Until now. - DJK

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
