       I get it.
Pretty cool. Picture a strip of tape that is actually a flattened tube cut to length, so you can still adhere one side of it where water collects and channel it wherever you want it to go... as long as it's downhill from there of course, unless you buy the microfluidic wicking combo kit.

       I assume sticky on the outside of the flattened tube maybe a backer in between tubes. Curving around stuff would be a pain if only half or quarter of the outside was sticky.   

       if it was sticky on the inside, it would be one of [max's] fluid experiments.

       And if the fluid needs to go up, there could be inexpensive peristaltic pumps sized to fit the tube.

       Lay-flat hoses are notoriously prone to kinking, sticky on one side or not. I'd suggest something like bendy straws with one flat surface lathered in adhesive. Pretty cool idea though just the same [+]

       Fluids do impose inertial pressure upon their carriers as they flow through them. This tape will have to be pretty tacky stuff.
