In Research: Self Healing Electronics Technology To Restore Conductivity
How does it work?
When the circuit breaks with a crack, the microcapsules break open and release the fluid metal contained inside. This fluid metal fills the crack; restoring the electric flow.

Advantages and Applications of Self Healing Electronics -
The major advantage of this new technology is that there is no need of human intervention to perform the repair. It’s completely autonomous. The breaking of microcapsules is induced only when and where the crack forms.
It’s application is highly advantageous to huge machines and devices, especially to air borne vehicles where it’s difficult to determine the exact location of the circuit break.
