Once a crack forms, water is able to enter the paved surface, and when it expands and contracts with changes in temperature it destroys the road. A group of scientists in South Korea have developed a new self-healing concrete coating that they claim can automatically seal cracks, preventing water from entering the material. The high-tech coating is both inexpensive and environmentally friendly, they say, because it could greatly reduce the need to regularly rebuild roads, bridges, and other concrete structures.

Nanotechnology is generally pursued by scientists and those involved with high-tech gadgetry , weapons, and medical devices , but that doesn’t mean it can’t be applied in other fields. Recently NYC-based Decker Yeardon became the first architecture firm to synthesize a thin sheet of carbon nanotube buckypaper , and they plan on utilizing the super-strong and lightweight material in future building projects. The miraculous material is 10 times lighter and 500 times stronger than steel, it can conduct both heat and electricity, and it can filter particles.
