Scientists developing Self Cleaning tableware

Piles of dishes to be washed often a dilemma for family members, especially for those who are busy working. Departing from this, Tomorrow Machine, a Swedish design studio has found a solution for those who are always in trouble with stacks of dirty dishes.
Swedish designers have finally solved the problem of whose turn it is to wash up with a range of plates that clean themselves. The plates are coated in a breakthrough technology that is resistant to dirt and water meaning food can't stick to it, and leftovers can just be rinsed away.

A self cleaning concept tool developed by developed by Swedish design studio Tomorrow Machine and research company Innventia. Innventia created the cellulose-based material, while the coating was created by the by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. As reported by the Daily Mail, on Tuesday, December 24, 2013, a set of cleaning tools is also equipped with a plate made from a new cellulose-based material that is lightweight but still feels like a solid ceramic.
Each of the plates are also made from a new cellulose-based material that is lightweight, but feels as hard as ceramic and is superstrong. Cellulose is an organic compound found in cotton fibre, wood and dried hemp. It gives these materials structure and strength. (Picture from: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/)
Cellulose is an organic compound found in cotton fiber, wood and hay. Although relatively mild, these materials are the type of material that is safe and strong as ceramics. "These products not only save resources during the manufacturing process, but also for the life cycle, and does not require water and chemicals to keep it clean." The cellulose pulp is first made into a sheet, which is then heat pressed in a mould. "The material becomes as hard as a regular ceramic product, but with the advantages that it is lightweight and won't crack or break in case it's dropped," says Hanna Billqvist of Tomorrow Machine told Dezeen.

The manufacture of plates and other utensils made ​​by printing cellulose into various forms of cutlery. Once cooled, the mold cutlery will soon harden and texture harder and stronger. This layer is then made ​​using a process that Rapid Expansion of Supercritical Solutions, which involves the solution of wax in carbon dioxide at high temperature and pressure. After that, sprayed onto the plate to make it resistant to all liquids and dirt.

With this technology, all liquid and dust falling into the food that will be easy to slip and did not stick. With other words, the food at this layer is like a lotus leaf surface remains dry despite wet. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DEZEEN | DAILYMAIL]
