Comments Off on Scientists Create World’s First Self-Healing Plastic

Photo via Shutterstock Spanish scientists have developed the world’s first self-healing polymer – a plastic that can be cut in half and then left to repair itself without any outside intervention. Nicknamed “Terminator” after the shape-shifting T-100 robot in the film “Terminator 2,” the polymer could be used to help everyday items last longer through normal wear and tear. This could reduce the amount of broken products sent to landfills and help avoid costly repairs. Check out a video of the plastic in action after the jump.
