Did your car get keyed? Just wave a UV light over it and all is well!

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio have come up with a new coating that will self heal scratches on cars. I guess there’s a polymer with living molecules in it that lay in state of rest until exposed to UV light. When that happens, it tries to crate a new molecular bond where the scratch is and heals itself within seconds.

The best part about this space age technology is that researchers say it is ready to go out into the field. Right now they are working on steps to commercialize the process of coating objects in an industrial setting. This sounds way too much like an infomercial, but I hope this has better results!
