Wetter report: New approach to testing surface adhesion

With a nod to one of nature's best surface chemists - an obscure desert beetle - polymer scientists have devised a convenient way to construct test surfaces with a variable affinity for water, so that the same surface can range from superhydrophilic to superhydrophobic, and everything in between.
