Nissan reveals self-repairing iPhone case

Nissan has revealed a new type of iPhone case that is capable of “healing” itself.

What may seem striking here is that Nissan is a Japanese automobile manufacturer and does not have much in common with electronics let alone Apple and iPhone but Nissan’s expertise comes from experience with automobile accidents that damage the car body. Apparently the Japanese automobile giant now wants to share its knowledge with Apple fans.

The new case is dubbed “Nissan Scratch Shield iPhone case” and obviously the case is capable of healing itself when scratched.

While this fact may seem surprising the technology behind is not new – in fact it has been used in the automotive industry and by Nissan in the past few years. It was developed back in 2005 by Nissan in a collaboration with the University of Tokyo and Advanced Softmaterials Inc. Some of the cars that come with this type of technology are Nissan, of course, and Infinity. Nissan explains: “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.”

The first cases were shown at an automotive event in Dubai and were given to journalists and customers for testing. Nissan says that if consumer interest is high enough the company will start mass production of the new hi-tech iPhone case.
