Japanese Scientists invented “elastic water”, paving the way for ecologically clean plastic materials

According to the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), Japanese Scientists invented “Elastic Water”. Also made it to the news of Japan’s National TV channel NHK, Japanese scientists from Tokyo University invented a new substance that consists of 95% water. Obtained by adding two grams of clay and a small quantity of some organic matter into normal water, this new substance is jelly-like and is considered proper for usage in medicine for the long-term to stick tissues together.

The study period is scheduled to end in September 2010, if the scientists can succeed in increase the density of the substance, it can be used to produce ecologically clean plastic materials.

    This is amazing, too bad it’s probably not edible, otherwise it could be used as a way to carry a water substitute for military purposes. Either way I am truly impressed and can only imagine the future possibilities.

    Haha Matt, I was going to say the same thing. Why is it that these amazing breakthrough technologies generally come with one or two crappy photos, and nothing else? In this YouTube-generation, you’d think we’d have videos, high resolution photos from every angle, demos, etc.

    This may lead to a new generation of contact lenses!
    The question is can they create a good modilety and good optic quality?

    Hello scientists, the asset to society.this is a major breakthrough in the histroy of plastics and it’s usefullness for human being.
    The people working for distructive inventions should follow Japaneese to learn how to deliver to society and not to destroy our peaceful world by those inlighted infidels.
    Keep it up with the zeal of sofistication and passion for good will of society.
    Long live Japan, it’s scientists and Pakistan’s friendship with Japan.
