In the patent is a repair app are described which ensures that behind the screen heating comes on. This would lead to cracks in the screen will automatically disappear. Also the body of the smartphone-owner could be used to crack remove.

It seems unlikely that the technology will soon actually in smartphones will appear. As far as is known, the development of the special plastic is still in a very early phase. Tech questions regularly for patents on technologies that they do not directly want to use.
