Bioinspired artificial spider silks with periodic spindle-knots can be fabricated under optimized conditions. As reported by Yongmei Zheng, Lei Jiang, and co-workers on page 3708, these silks are similar to natural silks in their ability to collect water from fog. Such bioinspired water collection materials may find applications in dry and fog-laden areas, using fog as an alternative water resource.
