Replacing a busted screen is frequently the only go-to choice after an unpleasant autumn, however Motorola seems working with an extra sci-fi alternative: regrowing your broken display precisely the spot.

Originally submitted in February of in 2014, the patent describes utilizing a “shape memory polymer” that regains its kind after being subjected to “thermal elements,” which can consist of the phone heating itself up, using a hair dryer, using temperature or perhaps leaving the damaged phone out in the sun.

While this might be a dream come real for clumsy phone owners, Motorola’s patented technique relatively just heals (or partly heals) smaller sized fractures as well as scrapes, making it much from a miracle drug for those bigger spills that can secure entire pieces of your screen.

Additionally, and as need to constantly be mentioned, patents like Motorola’s are just proof-of-concept. This means it could still be long while prior to we see this self-healing innovation at work, if at all.
