article image'Self-healing' iPhone case debuts

By Samuel Okocha     Jan 17, 2012 in Technology
Nissan has launched an iPhone scratch-proof case that has a coating that promotes a healing process which makes the case return back to its original shape when scratched.
The self repairing iPhone case was launched over the weekend at an automotive show in Dubai.
Tech Crunch described the product as the world’s first self-healing iPhone case and added it might be commercialized later this year.
Nissan and the University of Tokyo were said have developed the technology for the product in 2005, using a coat made from polyrotaxane.
"When the surface acquires a small scratch, its chemical structure reacts and changes back to its original shape, effectively filling the gap the scratch made," writes Gizmodo, explaining how the case works. "In other words, it heals."
The technology has been in use on several Nissan and Infiniti car models, according Ubergizmo.
