French researchers have invented a new material that is able to self-repair even when cut in half. The material is unnamed at this time, but is a form of artificial rubber made from vegetable oil and what is described as a component of urine.

According to the BBC the surface of the material retains a strong chemical attraction to the other half when cut. The material joins back together again after a cut without the need for glue or a special treatment of any sort.
The researchers are reportedly already making large quantities of the material in their lab and say that the process is almost completely green and with a few adjustments could be completely green. This material has a hoard of potential uses, the most obviously being tires that never need patching.
