Australian Man Invents 'Sand-Resistant' Beach Towel

Courtesy of Sandusa
After a long summer day at the beach, you'll likely have tiny grains of sand everywhere. They invade your beach bag, your car and your hotel room. The most frequent culprit of this spread of beachy mess is a towel, which unavoidably gets loaded with clumps of sandy particles -- until now. An Australian man has invented a "sand resistant" towel that has an underside with a waterproof nylon base. The top side is just like a regular towel, a normal cotton terry cloth that is soft and able to soak up moisture (so you can still dry off). Of course, the top side can still get sandy if you throw sand on it, but if you're careful enough the towel could solve all your sand woes. If it's an idea you'd like to get behind, the towel is currently being funded by an Indiegogo campaign.
