For example, embodiments of the invention include wiping devices, linear wiping elements or circular wiping elements with outwardly directed and/or inwardly directed annular wiping edges. The wiping device may include a plurality of wiping elements arranged in a row or array. Embodiments are provided wherein the wiping device is configured for use as a windshield wiper or squeegee.
