Inspired by the pitcher plant, researchers at the Wyss Institute, created a non-stick, ultra-repellent, self-healing surface coating called SLIPS (Slippery Liquid-Infused Porous Surfaces). This example of bioinspired engineering, a hallmark of the Wyss, has numerous applications such as in medical devices, HVAC, refrigeration, marine engineering, aviation, and manufacturing.
