By this time in June, we are in serious BBQ season! Potato salad, watermelon, grilled hot dogs and burgers – delicious! One of the most tedious parts of the meal has always been trying to get the last (or first!) bit of ketchup out of the bottle. But not for long.
A group of scientists recently took home an award in MIT’s $100k Entrepreneurship Competition for their invention LiquiGlide. Described as "a revolutionary super-slippery coating," this food-safe lining lets condiments slide right out of their containers!
You can watch more videos of their invention at work here. Isn’t it bizarre to watch these viscous, sticky condiments flow out of their containers? I think watching this might be as strange as watching this other ketchupy invention!
