Spring is upon us. The birds are singing, the trees are blooming, and millions of hay fever sufferers are shooting long strings of slime onto their chins and down their shirts. Through the miracle of nanotechnology, however, we can be spared this disgusting display.

Textile manufacturer Miyuki Keori Co is introducing a line of nano-infused materials designed to repel pollen. The nanoparticles, about 30 nanometers wide, prevent pollen from attaching to the the fibers in the material.

No word on availability, so too bad for you, Mr. Sniffles.
