Water-repellant material sheds like a snake when damaged

Imagine a raincoat that heals a scratch by shedding the part of the outer layer that's damaged. To create such a material, scientists have turned to nature for inspiration. They report a water-repellant material that molts like a snake's skin when damaged to reveal another hydrophobic layer beneath it.
