Artificial skin improves robots' sensory abilities

A new study demonstrates how a biologically-inspired skin improves robots' sensory abilities. This development is seen as a stepping stone towards developing robots that are able to interact more closely with people.

Artificial skin developed to enhance virtual reality

French scientists have developed an artificial skin that can enhance virtual reality. In addition, the skin may have a medical use, helping with patient rehabilitation after a person has suffered from serious burning.

Artificial skin promises enhanced perception

For robotics to advance sufficiently to undertake a number of roles performed by humans, the ability for the robot to ‘sense’ the external environment needs to improve. As part of this, a ‘super-sensitive’ artificial skin has been developed.

Essential Science: Jellyfish inspired electronic skin

Inspired by aquatic life, scientists have designed an electronic artificial skin which has the capability to ‘glow’ when the surface is damaged. The application will have several medical uses.

The new hydrogel that won’t dry out

Hydrogels offer a number of interesting applications, including medicines, bioelectronics and artificial skin. While hydrogels are useful they eventually dry out. Researchers have found a new way for keeping hydrogels moist.

Sensitive 'artificial skin' may soon be a reality

A recent press release from the American Technion Society says that a team from Israel has discovered how to create flexible sensors that may one day be used for electronic skin, or e-skin.
