I keep reading about people putting "chloroplast" on their cars.

Finally saw one!

Raw material?

So, is the aero theory behind this similar to golf ball dimples? What about the extra weight?

Funny story. I was talking with one of my coworkers (Sr Sci) about coroplast (one of our shipping containers uses it for protection), and he thought i said chloroplast. He's like "why the hell would anyone want to use chloroplast as a container?" hahah.

"our shipping containers uses it for protection"

Lucky you!


I bet the folks around the office at "Coroplast Inc" have had discussions along these lines before!

Hey, I wonder if they make it in green....

I'm glad you posted Metro. I saw "chloroplast" again and I thought I was going to have to blow up.

Coroplast hackers
Guinea pigs enthusiasts, RC builders and even homebuilt plane dreamers???, have to fight for eco-modders supply.
