    I was so hoping for dog hair proof interiors.

    There are some very interesting new technologies out there using nanotech for things like this. One of the ones I saw was a completely waterproof fabric (intended for uses like tents, raincoats, etc.)

    Video guy was annoying, but that's actually pretty cool. He mentions that if you were on a highway and someone threw chocolate syrup at your car, it would slide off from the wind. Wouldn't it just go onto the windshield then? Can a windshield be coated with the same substance?
