Nissan Scratch Shield: The Self-Healing iPhone Case
Yes, it’s true! There will soon be an extraordinary case for your iPhone, that will self-heal scratches and keep looking new for a long time. Nissan is a very famous automobile manufacture, known for making some of the best cars in the world like the Skyline GTR. But, this is the first time that they have decided on using their technology on something other than automobiles.
The Nissan Scratch Shield is an iPhone case, soon to be available in the market, which repairs scratches and small cuts on the surface of the case. It cannot, however, heal from deep scratches made by wolverine claws or keys. The case is covered with a special self-healing paint, which does all the magic. Hence, it’s not just a scratch resistant case, but it’s also self-healing.
The outer ‘paint’ is made from polyrotaxane, which means that when damage occurs to the coating in the form of a fine scratch, the chemical structure is able to react to change back to its original shape and fill the gap – ‘healing’ the blemish.
Nissan gave out some of these cases to journalists at the launch event in Dubai, and told them that they will mass produce it later this year if demand rises. Well, would you buy one of these self-healing cases that would look new for a longer period of time? Let us know in the comments.
