This doesn't appear to be "self-healing", they have to inject the material into the damaged area.  It seems to be basically the same as if they were using any two-part epoxy.  It's cool, but it's not self-healing, to be that, the repair material would need to be part of the damaged material beforehand, like the coagulating blood the article is incorrectly comparing this to.  You cut yourself, the blood flows into the cut, it's already there.  Make it work that way and you can call it self healing.

There was an article not too long ago about self-healing auto paint, too.

I saw something that said the eventual offshoot of this is a layer that can be sprayed on skin before going into combat to close wounds
/no wonder the DoD is paying for part of the research

I guess for some wounds/surgeries currently, they are using some sort of glue instead of / along with stitches.  Neat stuff.

Title: "Self healing plastic"
Article: "We drilled holes length-wise through a plastic plate, shot a hole cross-wise exactly through the channels, and then hooked the plate up to a binary epoxy pump that filled the hole with something that hardens."

yes, but this would work even if you were unconscious to stabilize you until help arrived

I see no practical applications for this other than maybe a bullet proof piece of glass that auto fills with clear epoxy after it's been shot?

Also when do we get self healing asphalt in the roads?  I'd think that would be bigger news than unrealistic solar roads.

Dude, "skin job" is not the preferred nomenclature. "Replicant-American", please.

Yeah, this struck me as more a "We need about 2.3 billion to further develop this product" kind of video rather than a "Look at our technology leap!" kind of video.  Oooh, you can "tailor" the amount of time it takes to harden?  You mean you can pump more or less Part B to the site?  Truly, yours is a dizzying intellect.

Yeah, it's been around since Vietnam actually.  Someone found a way to pussify cyanoacrylate accelerants and gave birth the the medically approved brand name of dermabond.  "Slow CA" has about the same effect.  Great cheap way to mend broken calluses if you play guitar, run, garden, etc...
