Woah. LiquiGlide, developed by a team at MIT’s Varanasi Research Group, is a surface coating that liberates the notoriously non-Newtonian fluid ketchup from its glass- or plastic-walled prison. The research came in second in MIT’s $100K Entrepreneurship Challenge, and is almost certainly destined for a bottle near you.
Mixture of cornstarch and water defies gravity over vibrating subwoofer. Watch as the pool of opaque goo dances over the speaker. The mixture is known as a non-newtonian liquid. I won’t purport to know what that is, nor do I really care very much, but if you do you can check out the link. I’d venture to say it looks too awesome for words.
