Five MIT students and their professor Kripa Varanasi have come up with a way to make a surface that anything will slide off—from ketchup out of bottles to ice off airplane wings. The plant-based product adds a microscopic slippery coating to almost any material—glass, ceramic, metal or plastic.

Flying humans wearing batlike suits competed in October in the first ever Wingsuit Flying World Championship in China. Participants descended from 5,000-ft. (1,500 m) cliffs, glided through a valley course and eventually parachuted down, covering about 3⁄4 of a mile (more than a kilometer) in about 30 seconds. The winner: South African Julian Boulle—one of just 20 people currently qualified to compete—who finished in 23.41 sec., a world record.
