Self-Healing Living Materials Could Mean No More Cracked Windshields

Imperial College London researchers have been working with engineered living materials (ELMs) designed to take advantage of the ability to heal and replenish material innate in biology. Researchers believe ELMs respond to damage sustained in harsh environments using an integrated system-and-response system. The investigation of this type of material could lead to real-world materials able to detect and heal damage.
