This is strange. An automotive company is making iPhone casing. However, if you deft deeper, it seems logical as they are going to use the same technology (or their self healing paint) used on a car on this casing.
This paint has been around since 2005 and has been used on a number of Nissan and Infiniti car models.
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 launched the case over the weekend at an automotive event in Dubai. Of course, it is not for sales yet as Nissan needs to know the demand or interest for it. Don’t expect it to be able to heal deep scratches. Only surface scratches can be “healed”. Here is a demo of the Self Healing Paint on a car.
