Shatterless screen? Yesterday's news! Motorola is working on a display glass that heals itself!

Motorola's Moto Z Force family of devices is famous for donning the ShatterShield display, or to put it simple — for being shatter-proof. It's a panel that's not made out of glass, but a plastic polymer. Sure, it scratches easily, but throw the phone on the pavement as much as you like, the screen will not break.

But Moto is working on improving the technology further. A recently discovered patent, which has been granted to Motorola, shows a new "smart glass" technology, which will have the phone repair its screen should it take any damage.

The invention involves a "memory" glass-like polymer, probably a kind of plastic, which "remembers" its shape and can move to restore it if conditions are met. On the software side, the phone will actually detect when there is a crack on the screen and will open up a prompt to start the healing process.

This makes a lot of sense because overall it aims to cut down on the number of claims for phones due to broken screens. I believe that broken screens are still the #1 claim for protection plans/replacement. My guess is that once this technology is mature, protection plans will add a clause stating that claims can be denied if they can prove that phones were subjected to significant forces that would cause even a screen such as this to break. Almost overnight that would cut down on succesful claims for devices with broken screens because minor breaks could theoretically be "healed" and major breaks could be denied due to the clause.
