University of Rochester researchers have figured out a way to make water go uphill on a silicon surface, with lasers. In scientific terms, the “scientists achieved the curious movement by using short laser blasts to carve imperceptible patterns into the silicon sheet.” Continue reading to see another method for making water travel uphill.

This could be the first step towards new heat regulation strategies for computers. Instead of fans, we may see liquid cooling systems thanks to silicon that can pump its own coolant.
