COIMBATORE: Believe it or not! People would require only one pair of dress, if Titanium Oxide was applied in its molecular form on it.
The cloth would not absorb sweat or any external particle and would retain an everlasting shine.
"Man would require only one pair of T Shirt or any other dress material, since it would not get dirtied by dust or any other particle, if the chemical was used by applying nanotechnology", Dr A Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Controller, R and D, DRDO, said during an interaction with college students here.
"You can just wipe off, if tea falls on the shirt. It will not be absorbed by the shirt. Shining would remain", Pillai, said, much to the surprise of over 800 students and faculty members assembled at the function.
Applying of titanium oxide would not cause any harm to the human skin also, he assured.
DRDO has been conducting researches in nano technology for quite some time.
However, he jokingly remarked that the revenue of the textile industry would dip, since people would be happy with one or two pairs of dresses.
