Usually, dry glue is a sign that you need a new tube of adhesive. But researchers in Japan have developed a new type of glue that’s perfectly dry until you crush it — at which point it becomes super sticky.
Remember that no-stick ketchup bottle of the future an MIT professor made a few years ago? Well, the MIT team created a company to sell the super slippery technology, and Elmer’s recently signed an exclusive licence to use it in their glue bottles. Pretty slick! (Sorry.)
Giorgio Vasari’s “Last Supper”, catastrophically damaged by the 1966 flooding of the Arno River in Florence, has finally been pieced together again — with the help of glue made from sturgeons. That’s right: fish.
