The self-cleaning, glare-free glass 
MIT researchers have unveiled a new technique which “virtually eliminates reflections, producing glass that is almost unrecognizable because of its absence of glare.” The days of straining your eyes or posing awkwardly to see your tablet screen better seem to be coming to an end. The team released a video of the new wonder glass, which doesn’t fog up, easily repels water, and can rid itself of dust and lint.
The groundbreaking technology works using microscopic, cone-shaped grooves measuring in the nanometers, which, while indistinguishable to the human eye, give the glass its near-magical properties. The researchers say the technique could easily be reproduced en masse to be applied to any number of every day objects: eyeglasses, cameras, TV sets, windows, and a countless other possibilities.
