SAC: A half-solid, half-liquid material that can self-heal and even ‘regain’ its original form

In August of last year, we harped about a self-healing electrical circuit that is capable of 'regenerating' its conductivity even when broken into two pieces. This time around, researchers from the Rice University have concocted a half-solid, half-liquid adaptive material that can not only self-heal but also 'restrengthen' itself into its original form even after…
