Making water bounce off of a surface? It's possible. Scientists at the University of Rochester have done just that, by creating a new metal that water bounces right off of.

The technology is incredible. The possibilities are endless. Imagine water bouncing off of your phone, instead of ruining your phone. That's just one of the ideas that have been thrown around after this discovery.

The metal has been created by using lasers to etch into the metal, instead of the basic chemical coating that are normally used (like a non-stick frying pan). By doing this, the scientists say the metal will be more effective, because there isn't a substance on it, that could possibly wear off.

Watch water bounce off this metal just like magic...but it's not magic. It's science!
