No Anticipation Needed: Getting ketchup out of a bottle could get much, much easier. Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a super slippery, non-toxic coating that shuns ketchup or mayonnaise, mustard, honey or any other stubborn, vicous fluid that likes to cling to the inside of bottles. MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith and his colleagues could revolutionize the $17-billion industry of condiment bottles with their LiquiGlide coating.
I think it could also work for hand lotions, shampoo and sunscreen. Just think of how much gets wasted when you can't get it all out of the bottle? Last week, LiquiGlide came in second place, out of 215 teams, in MIT’s $100k Entrepreneurship Competition.
This all may seem a little ho-hum, but watch the video below. Your jaw will drop. via FastCoExist
