Waterproofing Garments
Waxed jeans, scan?

Just something I was thinking about - it could be nice to have a way to waterproof either untailored materials, or finished articles, other than waterproof vinyl. Don't get me wrong, vinyl is definitely themely, but I also think it'd be slick to be able to commission, say, a cotton jacket, and then have it treated and waterproofed. A machine like the nanopress seems like the best bet, where the cost varies with the item in question, and you have to have some skill to be able to use it, so people couldn't just go and waterproof everything in sight. I also figure only some materials would be allowable - doesn't make a lot of sense to be able to waterproof a lace nighty or whatever. The actual IC mechanism could range from something as simple as a wax coating, up to a water-repellent nano-treatment, or whatever. Just an idea!

There are other things you can do / have done to stay dry.

In RL, I know you can currently "waterproof" ski jackets and such but you're not really waterproofing it, just making it repellent so the melting snow doesn't soak through.

This is the future though, but There is so much rain in CP that I'm not sure anything would truly work re: treatments. (Add in all the suppression and even if something like this did exist as an invention, would it be completed and would it be allowed in the doors of cities?)

But Someone with artistry alone would not be able to do that nano waterproof treatment if it did come around, imo. So this would require a combination of a couple skills depending on the tech level of the waterproofing if this machine was made.

But there are other things you can do in the meantime.

Well, I know you can do other things to stay dry, sure. I just thought it'd be nice to have an additional way. I don't know what skills are needed for the nanopress, but whatever you use for that would work for this. I mean, you'd have to use something to do it, not just do it on your own. Big machine, like the dying machine. Really, more than additional way to stay dry, I figured it'd be a good way to add more variety to player-made clothing, etc. "I've got this flash jacket but it always gets soaked..."

And yeah, maybe even just water-resistant would be an improvement. Gets soaked more slowly.

That's an idea.

Kind of like those elusive cans that temporararily "fix" the tire just enough to get it to a shop, some spray or something to slow down the wettening ;) process would be interesting.
