On this project we got inspired by the lotus flower, the leaves of the lotus  flower have the ability to stay clean even though they in live in muddy water. When a droplet of water rolls on  its leaves it also carries the particles of dust with them, this means it prevents from bacterial attachment. We wanted to use this in beneficial ways for humans to prevent them from harmful bacteria and infections. It can be used in limitless ways such as prosthesis, public places, textile, stainless steel materials etc.
