Then there are parties where someone might accidentally spill the drink on you. Wouldn’t it be nice if your shirt repelled the drink and remained stain-free? No more will you have to worry about how to tackle tea/coffee stains, for there is one such shirt that is being funded via Kickstarter and is known as Sillic. sillic shirt 3The amazing feature of Silic is that it is able to repel liquids. Aamir Patel is the brains behind this invention and has designed this shirt so that its fabric is coupled with microscopic silica particles which basically get attached to the fibers, forming an air barrier around it. This is the reason why any liquid which falls onto the shirt transforms into beads and falls off the fabric without damaging it. This means there will be zero bacteria growth and apart from that the shirt is anti-microbial.
