I tend to write informative blogs, but today I thought I would change it up a little. So I’m going to write about something that I think is really interesting! Anyways, how many times have you guys had to pound the bottom of your ketchup bottle in order to get that last bit for your burger? I know I have, and man it is annoying having to wait for the ketchup to fall out! But those days are over! Dave Smith, an MIT doctoral candidate, and his research team have invented LiquiGlide!
LiquiGlide is a slippery coat that will be sprayed inside of the ketchup bottles so it can come out at a faster speed than normal! Dave Smith claims that LiquiGlide is a safe substance that is made from non-toxic food materials and it is approved by the FDA. Mr. Smith also claims that LiquiGlide is so safe that you could eat a layer of the coat by itself and nothing bad will happen!
The reason for the invention of LiquiGlide was not actually for the speedy removal of your ketchup. It was actually invented because Mr. Smith’s team has calculated that over 1 million tons of food gets thrown away each year due to poor accessibility. Therefore, if LiquiGlide is put into different condiments such as mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard there would be a decrease in thrown out food.
Overall I believe that this is one of those small but AMAZING inventions. Yeah it is not going to save the world but I think it is incredibly smart because it is a small thing that will benefit everyone. I just personally don’t hope that condiments become more expensive due to having LiquiGlide in it.
Now it’s your turn readers, if condiments became more expensive due to having LiquiGlide in it, would you buy it or continue buying the cheap, endless pounding, bottles? Leave your comments below!
