Although the search for infallible concrete is not new, the development of self-healing bacteria concrete is. By embedding calcite-precipitating bacteria into traditional concrete mixtures, this material will hopefully "heal" cracks that result from stress.
Developed by Delft University of Technology, this self-healing bacteria concrete was created by use of nanotechnology. If implemented into everyday life, this marvelous material would save significant amounts of money in damage control.
