Technology and design will always surprise us, and have one again joined forces to create something interesting, unusual and useful. Professors from the University of California Mihri  Ozkan and Cengiz Ozkan designed an eco-friendly swimsuit that can absorb polluting oils that can be found in water. The bathing suit is composed of nano-carbons and is made of flexible plastic, designed with 3D printing. This incredible bikini can suck 25 times its own weight, something that of course can change according to its absorbed substance.
