Scientists have created a metal that water bounces off

Scientists at the University of Rochester have managed to create a metal which repels water using laser technology. And it's one of the most astonishing things we have ever seen.

Chunlei Guo, professor of optics at the university explains:

The material is so strongly water-repellent, the water actually gets bounced off. Then it lands on the surface again, gets bounced off again, and then it will just roll off from the surface.
