A material that is able to self-repair even when it is sliced in two has been invented by French researchers.
The as-yet-unnamed material - a form of artificial rubber - is made from vegetable oil and a component of urine.
The substance, described in the journal Nature, produces surfaces when cut that retain a strong chemical attraction to each other.
Pieces of the material join together again as if never parted without the need for glue or a special treatment.

Omg, dude you just made my day with that quote LMAO I needed a good laugh today.
This would be great for Aircraft tires. and gaskets, and so on but then I thought....This stuff must not be very biodegradable.I would think it would probably be very bad for the environment to make and dispose of.Would it not?
