There's sumthin new every day...
"...The researchers’ new technology, called Slippery Liquid Infused Porous Surfaces (SLIPS), uses nanostructures to create an ultra-smooth, slippery surface. “This new approach to ice-phobic materials is a truly disruptive idea..."
Interesting, i wonder though how it would go with the usual bug splat covered leading edges ?

Pity the engineers doing a top surface wing inspection.
