Many of our phones are covered in scratches and nicks. This is especially true for those who are accident prone, or have children who play with their devices.
That has made a screen protector and case a must have add on. Most of these are designed to reduce the amount of damage, but a Taiwanese manufacturer, Innerexile, has now created one that ‘heals’ itself.
Innerexile’s technology uses microcapsules filled with a glue-like liquid that automatically fills in the gaps created by the scratch.
The firm makes screen protectors for Apple devices, among them iPhones and Macbooks.
The new screen protector is just 0.2mm thick and can fix scratches in a matter of seconds. A demonstration video from the company shows scratches on an iPhone case being repaired in 30 seconds.
The screen protector is available to pre-order from Amazon for $24 for the iPhone 6 and 6s, and $26 for the Plus models.
Both models are expected to be shipped on 3 November.
