Hydrophobic doesn't mean that something avoids water, it means to have "fear of water"... How can an inanimate thing experience fear? They need a better term to describe that... That aside, it was pretty cool.

Dentalion you can buy it in any toystore, there are sets availible there.

this site sells it plus other fun stuff
kenny (guest)  -  May 28, 2006, 16:34
what the hell???? where can you get that stuff?? is it real sand?
Berticus (guest)  -  May 28, 2006, 19:29
in response to sdrawkcab, hydrophobic does not mean fear of water. It means avoidance of water. You need to learn your chemistry...

Berticus... while you are correct... sdrawkcab was talking the strict emtymology of the word... hydro meaning water and phobic meaning fear... but technically in chemistry, hydrophobic meanst that something will avoid water in the utmost repulsive manner

Yes its still some toy stuff, you can buy it in a toy store anywhere its not rare or anything:)

never seen this before.. very cool waste of your dollar
Dantalion  -  May 29, 2006, 03:21
to avoid water is: "devito aqua" in latin, water-avoiding is "aqua declinatio" in latin, so the term should be hydrodeclinatic sand instead of hydrophobic sand. But sand has feelings too, so scientists decided to call it hydrophobic :P
sdrawkcab (guest)  -  May 29, 2006, 13:03
@Berticus: Deal! I'll learn my Chemistry if you promise to learn your Etymology ;)

hydrophobic is a standard scientific word in everyday use. its meaning is exactly the use here. and the sand was pretty sweet.
waffo (guest)  -  May 29, 2006, 15:21
ok,THIS is the thing i was expecting from internet
Masterfrog (guest)  -  May 29, 2006, 22:03
I'd call that water-repellent, but whatever.
Dantalion  -  May 30, 2006, 05:11
lol lets call it different... easier... not hydrowhatever or blahblahphobic... no its magical! lets call it Magic Sand... oh I'm a genius :P

Fobic means "to have fear of something" The head of a soap molecul is hydrofobic It will stick in the dirt, so that the tail will vanish in the water.
sdrawkcab (guest)  -  May 30, 2006, 20:57
Whether it's a standard term in chemistry or not isn't my point. My point is that it doesn't mean that something avoids water, which is what the guy says in the video.

Uhhm Just Spray Scotch Guard On Sand Guys - Duh...
Emc2  -  June 13, 2006, 18:43

WHAT (guest)  -  July 20, 2006, 19:45
Hydrophobic literally means "fear of water", but it's also defined as avoidance of water. LOOK IT UP, GENIUS Hyrdophobic: adj. 1. Repelling, tending not to combine with, or incapable of dissolving in water.
Berticus (guest)  -  August 1, 2006, 04:26
@sdrawkcab, I know that hydrophobic literally means fear of water. But in context, it's using the scientific definition, so the meaning it takes on is avoidance of water...
vlaamick (guest)  -  August 7, 2006, 03:37
lmao i think they should of made up a new term instead of using 1 that already has a meaning that doesnt fit 100% the pehnomenom
LOL (guest)  -  August 18, 2006, 20:53
Would be interesting to see an artificial beach made with that stuff! :) (besides it being blue)

I want some!

"Hydrophobe (from the Greek (hydros) "water" and (phobos) "fear") in chemistry refers to the physical property of a molecule that is repelled by water. Hydrophobic molecules tend to be nonpolar and thus prefer other neutral molecules and nonpolar solvents. Hydrophobic molecules in water often cluster together. Water on hydrophobic surfaces will exhibit a high contact angle."
