Have you ever think of ‘what if your phone’s broken screen has heal/repair itself automatically just like your skin?’
Yeah, self-healing materials will help us to build self-repairing phones, gadgets, household appliances, or even architectural structures like buildings and bridges. And, prevent them from damages and cracks by aging.
