Nissan released its latest model and it’s the farthest thing from a car, they’ve designed an iPhone case. Nissan has created the world’s first self-repairing iPhone case. Loaded with automotive technology from Nissan, the case is designed to be able to repair itself if scratches occur.
The case features Nissan’s self-healing paint finish. Nissan developed the paint back in 2005. Considering iPhones are prone to scratches from everyday use, the new paint technology seemed like a no brainer. The outer paint heals itself because the paint is made from polyrotaxane. When a scratch occurs, the chemical structure reacts to put itself in its original state so the paint looks normal again, thus healing itself.
The Nissan Scratch Shield iPhone case paint also has more of a gel feel than gloss which gives a better grip which leads to better protection of the phone. Nissan constructed the case with ABS plastic, a high grade plastic used in the automotive industry that allows the case to be extra rigid and fit tighter.
The case is a prototype right now that is going through extensive testing. If the case passes quality testing, Nissan looks to sell the case by the end of the year.
