Hydrophobc Silic Shirt Repels Liquid

Remember the Rust-Oleum NeverWet Hydrophobic Liquid Repellant spray?  This is similar, but applies to a t-shirt.  The Silic shirt looks like a normal white t-shirt but it has silica particles layered in with the polyester fabric.  This magic weave causes water-based liquids to to bead up and roll right off of the shirt.  It doesn't matter if it is sweat, Gatorade, maple syrup, or beer, it just rolls right off of the shirt.  While that alone is pretty cool, the dry factor of the shirt also means that bacteria and other cooties have a hard time sticking to the shirt.  Less cooties = less washing.  Video of the shirt in action after the break.
