A company called Toray Advanced Film is about to make scratches a thing of the past. The technicians of the Japanese company have developed a special kind of self-repairing film. Being able to fix scratches in 10 seconds or less (or so they claim) is definitely an edge over other similar tech. It simply feels that much more like it’s straight out of a scifi novel.
The film can erase scratches about 20.000 times in succession, according to Toray, but it cannot fix straight up puncturing of the film. It also works faster in lower temperatures so the more accident-prone users may find new homes for their phones in their fridges.
This wonder film is already being sold for some notebooks in Japan. We’ll see about the price point when the tech arrives to the rest of the world. Surely some people are ready to pay a bit more for that wonderful scifi-factor.
