It's called Magic Sand.

wonder if this could be used to prevent flooding somehow...

It can only coat silicon, so I doubt it, but perhaps.

I want to make a beach out of this stuff, but glow sand as well.

BTW, how do you submit three videos at once?

This had been around for decades. It's a kids toy called magic sand or aqua sand.

Link: Hydrophobic Sand - Science! [Rate Link] - Made by exposing sand to trimethylsilanol vapor. The trimethylsilanol coating is hydrophobic & makes sand un-wettable.
