Interesting possibilities. I am somewhat confused by the photo's and description though. Doesn't oil usually float on top of water?

Lots of usage for this discovery, oil clean ups, polluted waterways, etc.  I am most interested in the application on the hulls of ships.  An unfouled hull generates cost savings over one that sports marine growth; overall maintenance is less as well.

This is very cool and could have some real potential helping with clean ups from oil spills as you mention. How close are they to commercializing and I'm somewhat confused: Is this the beginnings of a robotic device or a coating? Either way, I bet they'll be some real interest.
