Elizabeth, I didn't really get the immediate wow factor of continuous tunability until I saw the start-stop action on the video of a drop rolling down--and then stopping on--a vertical surface.

Thanks, far911. What's even more amazing to me is that the system is adaptable to different materials for different purposes and to different stimuli for creating those changes.

Fascinating stuff, Ann. Some of the science of this goes a bit over my head, but it's always interesting to read about the latest advancements in materials and how they are composed.

This is fascinating stuff and is sure to bring countless number of uses. Having an open-air event and being able to control the air flow is quite handy. A good air flow when its sunny and a resistive material when its raining, and being able to do this any time at will is just magical.
