Nanotechnology products today

  • “Nanite” developed by Oceanit that uses nanotech to turn normal cement into smart-sensing cement to turn the road into a sensor
  • Cosmetic products by L´Oréal that uses nanotechnology to transfer active agents such as vitamins
  • “Smart fabrics” that use nanoscale sensors and electronics with capabilities for health monitoring, solar energy capture, and energy harvesting through movement
  • Self-cleaning glasses called “Activ Glass” by Pilkington which uses nanoparticles to make the glass photocatalytic and hydrophilic
  • “Double Core” tennis balls by Wilson that have a layer of clay nanoparticles which helps keep the air inside of the ball
  • OLED TVs that use nanoparticles-based coatings for packing the OLEDs to protect them from environmental damages
