Researchers have developed LiquiGlide, a new 'super-slippery' coating that helps condiments easily slide out of their containers- no tapping required.

Can’t get that last bit of ketchup out of the bottle? Forget trying to get it out by scraping it out with a knife or by tapping tirelessly on the magic ’57’ spot on the side of the bottle- MIT researchers have created a bottle coating technology that makes ketchup simply glide out without any effort.

MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith and a team of researchers and nano technologists from MIT’s Varanasi Research Group have created LiquiGlide, a non-toxic, edible, and ‘super-slippery’ coating for the inside of bottles. The flavorless LiquiGlide coating is made from FDA approved food materials, and won’t mix with the ketchup or any other condiments.
