As time goes on, different technology keep evolving… some duo who are still living in the primitive era of ideology will call it end time but this is technology in a new dimension.
This is just to tell you that in the nearby future, you won’t be needing anti scratch smartphone but self healing smartphone screen. No matter the scratches on the screen of your device, it will self heal itself.
If you drop your phone and the screen shatters, you usually have two options: Get it repaired or replace the phone entirely. But with this latest discoveries, it shattered your two options and present you with a third option…self heal itself.
Scientist at University of California Riverside have invented a phone screen material that can heal itself.
The researchers conducted several tests on the material, including its ability to repair itself from cuts and scratches. After they tore the material in half, it automatically stitched itself back together in under 24 hours, Chao Wang, a chemist leading the self-healing material research, tells Business Insider.
The material, which can stretch to 50 times its original size, is made of a stretchable polymer and an ionic salt. It features a special type of bond called an ion-dipole interaction, which is a force between charged ions and polar molecules. This means that when the material breaks or has a scratch, the ions and molecules attract to each other to heal the material.
This is the first time scientists have created a self-healing material that can conduct electricity, making it especially useful for use for cellphone screens and batteries, Wang says.
We expect to see full manifestations of this new discovery available in smartphones beginning from 2020.
