Scientists Create Synthetic, Self-Healing Skin

“Scientists say they have created a touch-sensitive plastic ‘skin’ that can heal itself when torn or cut,” according to research published Nov. 11 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. “The Stanford University team tested the healing ability of the synthetic skin by cutting a piece of it in half with a scalpel. They then gently pressed the pieces together for a few seconds and found that the material quickly regained 75 percent of its original strength and conductivity.” Within 30 minutes, restoration of almost 100 percent was seen.
