In this letter, we introduce a novel liquid manipulation strategy to design dynamically hydrophobic and statically hydrophobic/hydrophilic patterned surfaces using an "omniphobicity"-based technique. The surfaces guide the sliding direction of a droplet in the presence of a statically hydrophilic area where the droplet does not stick on the transport path significantly enhancing the fluidic system transport efficiency. The concept of dynamically hydrophobic and statically hydrophobic/hydrophilic patterned surfaces in conjunction with omniphobic patterning techniques having surface multifunctionality, we believe, has potential not only for fluidic applications but also for future material engineering development.
