Wow it looks so easy how that guy repaired the dent so easily,but seems like you need a lot of practise for doing that because he measured the depth of the dent then did something to repaire it, quite a complicated process done so easily.

Saw the video at the website looks to be a non-invasive procedure. Is such a tool available in the market?

Heres a video of the same thing, though this guy is using liquid CO2 instead of dry ice.
It shows it actually working.

Dry Ice is solid CO2! Hence the name, "ice".

It has the peculiarity of going from solid to gas without becoming a liquid on the way, hence the name "dry".
