Fabric that repairs itself

September 16, 2016

One day in the future the clothes we wear might be able to mend themselves.

Scientists have created a special fabric that meshes together when water and a bit of pressure are applied.

It’s inspired by chemicals found in a squid’s tentacles which allow the creature to heal themselves quickly.

By using those chemicals in the fabric it’s possible to make a material that stitches itself back together when needed.

The scientists at Pennsylvania State University and the US Naval Research Laboratory in Washington say this tech could be used to make protective suits to help keep people like soldiers or farmers safe from dangerous materials.

This is a cool project as we won't have to buy as many clothes.

COOL now I can wear jeans that don't rip in the future.

If this actually gets created this could change the world. You technically wouldn't have to buy a new pair of jeans and stuff like that because they'd repair themselves.
