University of Rochester researchers, inspired by diving bell spiders and rafts of fire ants, have created a metallic structure that is so water repellant, it refuses to sink -- no matter how often it is punctured. Could this lead to: • An unsinkable ship? • A wearable flotation device that will still float after being punctured? • Electronic monitoring devices that can survive long term in the ocean? All of the above, says Chunlei Guo, professor of optics and physics, whose lab describes the structure in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. The structure uses a groundbreaking technique the lab developed for using femtosecond bursts of lasers to “etch” the surfaces of metals with intricate micro- and nanoscale patterns that trap air and make the surfaces super-hydrophobic (water repellent). The researchers found, however, that after being immersed in water for long periods of time, the surfaces may start to lose their hydrophobic properties. Enter the spiders and fire ants, which can survive long periods under or on the surface of water. How? By trapping air in an enclosed area. Argyroneta aquatic spiders, for example, create an underwater dome-shaped web – a so-called diving bell – that they fill with air carried from the surface between their super-hydrophobic legs and abdomens. Similarly, fire ants can form a raft by trapping air among their superhydrophobic bodies. “That was a very interesting inspiration,” Guo says.
Tom Felton EXCLUSIVE : Harry Potter star brands Emma Watson 'incredibly smart and lovely' and claims he is also 'happily self-partnered'. Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, the actor, 32, called the Little Women star, 29, an 'incredibly smart and lovely young lady', before admitting he was also
They had to spark a reaction out of Ron, played by Rupert Grint , who’s in love with Hermione. Which was something that would really rock Ron’s boat and really be quite painful and nasty for him to watch,” Emma says . “I’m proud of it, and considering how bloody awkward it was,” Emma continues.
Rupert Grint is looking back at his years on the set of the Harry Potter franchise, and opening up about the off-screen "sparks" that flew between some of his fellow castmates.
Recently, Emma Watson spoke about being single in a cover story for British Vogue, where she said she prefers the term "self-partnered."
Soon after, her Harry Potter co-star, Tom Felton, praised Watson and her term while speaking with MailOnline, and laughingly said, "I like it! It’s the first I’ve heard of it, but it’s great. I’m in the same category, to be honest with you, quite happily self-partnered."
Grint, however, admits that he could see the two stars hitting it off, if that came to pass.

"There was always something," Grint told ET's Rachel Smith while sitting down with his The Servant co-star, Nell Tiger Free, as the pair promoted their upcoming AppleTV+ thriller series. "There was a little bit of a spark."
Grint laughingly said he didn't want to stir up any drama or rumors, but admitted that there "were some sparks" indeed during the years together on set.
"But we were kids. It was like any kind of playground romance," Grint added with a shrug. As for his time on set, he never really had any flirtations with his fellow co-stars. "I didn't have any sparks. I was spark-free."
Grint's relationship with the film franchise is unique, as shooting the eight-installment series made up a huge portion of his childhood and teenage years. In fact, he felt so close to the production that he never saw the films themselves, and only recently watched the first movie in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Best Friends: Emma Watson with Tom Felton , Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe (Hermione Granger With Draco Malfoy, Ron Weasley and Harry Potter) Emma Watson
Emma Watson talks about filming kissing scenes with co-stars, and childhood friends, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint , and also alludes to a schoolgirl crush on Tom Felton .
As for why it took so long to watch his movies, Grint explained, "You watch us grow up through all the awkward teenage stages, and it's not something that I've ever really wanted to revisit. [Although] It was a great experience, and I've got great memories."
As for a possible reboot or revival of the franchise, Grint said it might not be something he -- or his castmates -- are prepared to consider.
"It was an amazing period of our lives, but I don't think any of us would be keen to jump back into it just yet," Grint shared. "But never say never."
Currently, Grint stars opposite Free, Toby Kebbell and Lauren Ambrose in the upcoming psychological horror series The Servant.
In the show, Kebbell and Ambrose star as Sean and Dorothy, parents of a young child who hire an eccentric young nanny (Free) to care for their infant child. Although not everything is as it first appears, and soon the situation spirals out of control.

“We do see each other quite a lot actually,” he told US Weekly in a November 24 interview. “We just don’t always post pictures about it. The most recent meet-up between the Slytherin and Gryffindor alums went down in Los Angeles earlier this month, when Tom took Emma on a skateboard lesson

It's soon revealed that their infant actually died of health complications and the couple replaced him with a life-like doll. While Sean understands the situation, Dorothy lives in denial, treating the doll as a real child and living as nothing happened. Meanwhile, their new nanny plays along a little too well, and furthers Dorothy's delusions.
"It's quite heavy and it's quite dark, but it also has these elements of kind of surreal humor and it's got a lot going on," Grint shared.
