    A new technique for treating glass can permanently prevent glass from fogging and virtually eliminate glare, scientists reported today.

    The treatment could improve everything from car windshields and eyeglasses to camera lenses and solar panels, according to the leader of a research group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    MIT materials scientist Michael Rubner presented his team's findings this morning at a chemistry conference in Washington, D.C.

    Unlike other anti-fogging coatings, the new technology doesn't have to be reapplied or exposed to light in order to work, Rubner said. Both simple and inexpensive, the new fog-resistant treatment could be conveniently mass-produced, he added.

    "It's a cheap, simple process," Rubner said. "I could teach you how to do this, and you could make these [products] in your garage."

    Now I'm confused; why do we need to a method 'to virtually eliminate glare' that 'doesn't have to be ... exposed to light'? What am I missing?

    No it's the fog part that doesn't have to be exposed to light. The glare part, well that's just funny.

    That can't be right; intelligible humour is illegal at MIT.
