Tiny scales for medical implants and flexible electronics
Scales are the material of choice for animals from pangolins to fish: They're customizable, water-friendly, strong but flexible, and easy to fix when damaged. Scientists would like to recreate this unique structure—they can imagine uses from medical implants to flexible electronics—but it's proved difficult using non-organic materials.
