What if your electric device could repair itself when it encountered a little wear and tear? Israeli Researchers have developed just that, a self-repairing electric device based on nanocrystals! With this technology, devices could potentially last much longer without needing repairs or replacements. So far, the researchers have used the technology to create a smart window that can heal tiny cracks in its surface. Pretty amazing stuff! 🙂

Why is this important?
One of the characteristics of living organisms is that they are capable of self-preservation. For example, when the skin is injured the body knows how to heal the wound by itself. One of the more exciting fields of research today is focusing on the attempt to reduce the gap between animate and inanimate. Groups of scientists and startups around the world are working to develop self-healing materials. Success in this effort is expected to spark a revolution in the realm of industrial manufacturing and could have major environmental ramifications.
