WHATTHEHELLNo, seriously, what's the trick? There has to be some clever aspect that I'm not getting. Is the stain? The glass? How is this working?
How is this shit even remotely possible?
Notice that they only "lifted" gel.
Try water water water. Sauces and butter is not enough impress me.
My guess is the gray surface the spill is on is specially designed not to absorb these kinds of stain (possibly just fats). If the surface doesn't absorb the spill, then taking the stain off is just a matter of having a thin, rigid surface.
That could be a superhydrophobic nanostructured surface being unrolled and rolled back. :)
Yah right, let's see them try that on a silk shirt, not just a plastic surface.
This would work awesome if every single surface of my house was made of stainless steel.
HOLY SHIT if only they had this when i was a kid i couldve totally avoided my fave shirts from being stained
i think this trick is that, there's another transparent plastic in between the sauces and the table. the machine basically just lifts the plastic. it couldnt lift the sauce half way. cus it's on top of the plastic.
I can clean up my fap sessions with this.
^ If you put toilet paper over the tip before it blows, the stuff doesn't go everywhere.
...so, does it only work on glass?
Dudes, this is a tiny conveyor belt. As the plate moves forward the conveyor surface around it moves back.This way, the particles of the stain don't move. That's what makes this pick up the stain without pushing it like the aluminum plate they show.Actually pretty clever and not that WTF at all, it's the kind of weird thing you'd see in a late-night ad or something! The "cowgirls" on the other hand.......
I'm pretty sure the whole stain has a thin bit of clear plastic underneath it, and that the dovielacka is scooping underneath the plastic sheet.
mkay then... all i have to say is wtf japan! seriously?
It Maybe works with the Lotus effect: a super Hydrophobic Surface
Of course there is a thin plastic film, when you see the gel pushed by aluminum plate and then lifted by the Machine, there is a portion at the beggining which is more like humidity or stain on the surface, which is also lifted and placed in the same pattern. Pretty smart video though! ;)
i think Jotaf is right about this one.
Mmm cocaine's new best friend.
My dog just pooped on my carpet!
OMG,this is like SO COOLLL!~ WTF JAPAN SERIOUSLYYY!
HEY BILLY MAYS HERE FOR THE SPILLY LIFTER (rip billy mays)
Your beedsheets need this mashine.
It's magic... Oh yeah! :P
I wish that thing worked for omelets
I would like to see this using a rugged surface...
