The waterproof fabric coater is a student-designed, table-top device used to impregnate fabric with a waterproof coating. The motivation behind this project is to make a swim cap that is accommodating to African-American hair types, and to provide a way for more African-American children and adults to learn how swim, without being hindered by their hair style.
