INHABITAT: Nissan Unveils World’s First Self-Healing iPhone Case 

I’ve always been a fan of self-healing materials.  I was first introduced to the concept in grade school when my mom had a self-healing cutting board.  I started using self-healing cutting mats once I had entered college for multiple projects, but I’ve never considered the technological applications of such innovation.  It is tremendous to read about iPhone cases, which is always the starting point of phone accessories due to it’s standardized dimensions, because it gives way to actual implementation by phone manufacturers.  For future use, I can imagine using such material for windshields, as mine has been dinged several times due to salt and ice.
