How to Get Ketchup Out of the Bottle?

June 18, 2012

Do you have a secret trick to get those last globs of ketchup out of the bottle?

Whether you violently shake the bottle or have a more elegant method, this may soon be a thing of the past. Why? Thanks to LiquiGuide, a new “super slippery” coating, developed by a group of MIT engineers. It is made up of nontoxic materials that can be applied to all sorts of food packaging.

Watch what happens when you pour ketchup out of a LiquiGlide-coated bottle:

This team of engineers came in second place in MIT’s $100k Entrepreneurship Competition, just a few weeks ago. The biggest payday, however, will come if they actually sell the invention to companies that make sauces, a market that is worth $17 billion.

Maybe some big companies will bite 😉
