PNNL: News - Weird, water-oozing material could help quench thirst
http://www.pnnl.gov/news/release.aspx?id=4282
"A paper published today in Nature Nanotechnology
<http://www.nature.com/nnano/index.html> describes the physical processes
behind this spectacle, which turned out to be the first experimental
viewing of a phenomenon theorized 20-some years ago. The discovery could
lead to a large range of real-world applications, including low-energy
water harvesting and purification for the developing world, and fabric that
automatically pulls sweat away from the body and releases it as a vapor."
