Self healing plastic: the end of broken gadgets?
13 November, 2012 | Web design
How many times have you dropped your phone, only to find as you pick it up that your screen is cracked?
Well this could be a thing of the past now that researchers at Stanford University have created a self-healing plastic which could be used within tablets, Smartphone’s and many other types of gadgets.
Self-healing surfaces aren’t exactly new but up until now they weren’t able to be safely mixed with electrical devices.
Yet Stanford University has created a plastic that can now work safely without any electrical limitations.
This means your Smartphone can now, in theory, remove scratches and dents without having to send it off for repairs.
Meaning you can restore your damaged phone back to its former glory within minutes.
However before you get too excited, you may have to wait quite a while before this becomes a reality and that’s assuming it is commercially viable.
Hopefully we will be able to see this new technology in the near future as no one likes to see their favourite gadgets slip out of their hands...
