Nanotech is creeping into our lives, and now it surfaces in fishing lures, where vacuum equipment manufacturer Ulvac has created Strom, an especially shiny fishing lure with an optical coating that uses nanotechnology. The trick here is its holographic color that keeps its shininess regardless of the viewing angle. That will theoretically attract the attention of veritable universities of fish.
According to the manufacturer's tests, these Strom lures caught four times more fish than other lures. The manufacturer failed to mention that those competing lures were covered with dogshit. Anyway, the Strom lure will be available in two types, one that weighs 2.4g and another at 3.7g, and both go on sale online next month for $25.
