That would have come in handy at 5am this morning, when I accidentally tipped over the glass of water on the nightstand, thus sending my Droid on an impromptu log flume ride to the floor. 

Stupid glass of stupid water.  >:-[

one step closer to Skynet

would this work like a run flat tire where it seals itself and gets you to a place where it can be fixed? IE. not a permanent fix?

How cool! Now when skynet rises, it can build things like liquid robots that come back together after they are blown apart by a shotgun!

What happens when more than one circuit is cracked and the polymers flow out and bond more then one circuit, instant short circuit!

I had a similar first impression. In an area where the traces are tightly packed together, it might get tricky to keep the healing process confined to only a single trace. Perhaps they can also make a substrate that will prevent the healing process if the gap is larger than a specified distance between each trace during production.

Only once is better than none at all

Question is... how many times can it repair itself.  I'm guessing only once?
