Okay, so technically only the paint is self-healing. That's still totally awesome. Docomo (via Akihabara), a Japanese mobile manufacturer, has just signed a deal with Nissan to start creating cell phones that use the auto maker's 'self-healing paint'. The special paint, designed originally for cars, is capable of 'healing' small scrapes and scratches in as little as a night. Even more extensive damage can be fixed, given extended (a week or more) periods of recuperative time. The self-healing paint is also scratch-resistant. Considering how much stress mobile device cases undergo, the application of Nissan's paint sounds like a great idea.Currently, Docomo is the only mobile device maker to latch onto this new technology. Hopefully they won't be the only ones. Self-healing paint brings our smartphones one step closer to the T-1000.
