This Futuristic Water Super Glue Developed By MIT Engineers Is So Fascinating

MIT engineers have developed a method to make synthetic, sticky hydrogel that is more than 90 percent water. The engineers over at MIT actually took inspiration from tiny sea-dwelling barnacles that are known to glue themselves to the hulls of ships.

The hydrogel, which is a transparent, rubber-like material, can adhere to surfaces with a toughness comparable to the bond between tendon and cartilage on bone.
