    I wonder how resistant this surface is to abrasion though. It seems to me that nano structures on the surface could get worn down pretty easily. Swiping the screen and putting a phone in your pocket means the surface is continually being rubbed.

    Also slightly misleading. This is more micro-metre scale tech.

    It would definitely benefit solar panels, and possibly also various fields of optics - Micro/telescopes, camera lenses etc.

    Us motorbikers see amazing new anti-fog stuff pitched at us every week to stop our visors misting up when you breathe on them during cold weather. From bitter personal experience, 99 percent of the vendors are little more than snake-oil merchants.
