OK. We Didn't Get Flying Cars... But 2013 Is Starting Off With a Technological Solution to a Centuries Old Problem
Students at MIT have come up with a coating for food packaging and other containers they are calling LiquiGlide. According to their website, LiquiGlide provides a super-slippery surface for containers that is made from FDA-approved edible materials.
Safe to eat - but nothing sticks to it? Hmmm...
Reminds me of that weight loss pill that comes with the warning that you might "have bowel changes, known as treatment effects."
In any event, this LiquiGlide video shows mayonnaise sliding right out of the container without a drop of waste.
All hail the future!
