At long last, mankind can enjoy as much ketchup as they want without feeling like breaking the bottle with a hammer thanks to a team at MIT's Varanasi Research Group who've developed a new surface coating for bottle called 'LiquiGlide.'
A team of MIT mechanical engineers and nano-technologists took two months to develop the coating, and one of the biggest challenges they faced was making sure the coating was safe to consume, which meant ingredients had to be FDA-approved. Said team member Dave Smith, an MIT Ph.D. candidate. “I can’t say what they are, but we’ve patented the hell out of it.”
The research came in second in MIT's $100K Entrepreneurship Challenge, and is almost certainly destined for a bottle near you. Check out the bonus mayonnaise version in the clip below:
