Ice milled polymer fiber Things (carpet, microfluidics, mineral concentrators)

Use 4800 dpi or higher to print a shape on rollers with frozen water, then imprint a polymer thread with that ultramicrotextured structure, the water evaporates leaving the structure, which may be matter clumped to be acoustically resonance tuned to wiggle differently at different areas

Use 4800 dpi or higher to print a shape on rollers with frozen water, then imprint a polymer thread with the ultramicrotextured structure, the water evaporates leaving the structure, which may be acoustically resonance tuned to wiggle differently at different areas.

There is a thing they might call nanomesh that is currently 5 times lighter than aerogel. I think it can be rapidly printed with temporary crystals on rollers.

one use of this micropatterned fiber might be carpet where the fibers would move variably at different acoustic frequencies as a result of customized resonance at fibers of a particular length. Thus at certain vacuum cleaner sounds, perhaps those actually pleasant to hear, the carpet would wiggle a bunch, shedding dirt. Notably a vacuum is only 14 PSI, so a wiggle clean carpet could move n remove dirt at 42 PSI from acoustic effects to say "three times the cleaning force" or the like

A highly similar use would be to weave small (XXXXXO shapes that when acoustically massaged would act like peristaltic pumps at microfluidic constructions.

yet another similar use would be (comically) gold prospecting as a sluice just uses the drop time of turbid water to concentrate gold, thus an area of something as macrosize as plastic grass could wiggle under sound or EM such that microparticles were kept at the moving flyuid while gold still collected. This could be an effective approach to getting more mineral resource from microparticle water which might now represent a very large (math distribution perspective) amount of the desired mineral.

Then of course there is the sex toy or condom, this has a micropatterned wiggle microvelvet that could possibly feel better than the real thing, improving the popularity of condoms. just think, stroking velour one way compared to the other feels different, what if the surface of a vibrator or both sides of a condom had little rotating weathersystems of twirling microvelour matched to the amount of physical activity. disposable vibrating cock rings are already highly thought of at yahoo answers suggesting disposable battery powered twirling microvelour condoms could do well.

Now the polymer threads could do this EM wiggle thing at carpet or microfluidics as well. I think that Neodyium Iron Boron magnet powder, as a neutral fieldless version, sprayed onto the polymer thread would give it extreme EM wiggleability, less extreme wiggleability would come from using conductive polymer composite thread then inducing a field with AC to do the wiggling.

Also it is possible ultra vivid bird colors could be produced with ice milled polymer thread as the iridescent colors of some birds is actually from refractive feature spacing.

the EM polymer composite or the vivid color microfeatureing could then be coated with another polymer to maintain structural soundness

Now reasonably a person could say, "you just used water at the descriptor as people easily imagine pressing microprinted ice crystals onto a polymer thread then having the water evaporate" certainly something like tiny AMU PVDF or even octane ice would create greater physical impressability with higher evaporative rate, Then I would say they were right as PVDF of tiny molecular weight (like just two or three PVDF monomers linked) may well be quite strong, is partly fluorinated so has minimized stickiness, even further as a piezoplastic it might swell or shrink under an EM field to give even greater feature resolution or superior mold release with EM.

4800 DPI at 39.99 http://www.compusa....=4774473&CatId=2709
you could go with higher resolution 4800 dpi is just easy to locate n convincingly cheap. [beanangel, Mar 19 2012]

PVDF http://en.wikipedia...vinylidene_fluoride
a two mer polymer looks around 100 AMU, near the evaporatingness of octane, so a PVDF dimer might be mechanically rigid yet still evaporate more easily than water PVDF is also piezoelectric so just as you can vibrate a crystal with electricity you might be able to EM vibrate PVDF as part of shaping or releasing the polymer microshape [beanangel, Mar 19 2012]

disposable vibrating cock ring reviews at Yahoo answers suggest a wiggly microsurface condom or vibrator would do fairly well http://answers.yaho...070118101138AASmVps
also these have been produced for awhile so apparently its a viable product [beanangel, Mar 19 2012]

You might want this. http://iopscience.i...D4EE4C9921BC9744.c2

       It's gotten to where the initial level of enjoyment consists of trying to decide whether this is an [beanangel] idea or somebody's "tribute to the style" idea before you've finished reading the description. I wasn't certain on this one.   

       Oh, and certainly you can do better than [product:general] as a category.

       well any of product fabric, fiber, thread, printing, polymer might be creatable   

       however its product:mold as its a teeny amount more like that

       This would have been a better idea if it had stopped after the second comma.

       Water desalination possibility   

       its possible that from an evaporative perspective, a one molecule thick layer of water is easiest to make vapor   

       do you think that a surface where the EM or even a temperature shift shape changing plastic changed its surface from negative contact angle through hyperwetting angle would create thinner water layers with a bead up streeetch bead up streeetch cycle   

       also, do you think em or sonic microwiggling at the surface of an osmotic membrane would keep the layer nearest the plolymer from building up a concentration layer

       You may want to look into uv polymerization for your purposes. Good versatility and reproducibility.

       I dunno about that, but it sure would tickle funny.
