This battery heals itself if you break it in half

by David Nield, Science Alert

Scientists have developed a self-healing electronic device that repairs itself when broken, using a special magnetic ink to bridge gaps as wide as 3 millimeters (0.12 inches) – a new record in the field.

The technology could be used in a variety of ways, including batteries and sensors for wearables, because it works much faster than other self-healing materials and requires no external input to carry out the patch-up job. Continue reading This battery heals itself if you break it in half
