Artificial Skin Sensors made from Sticky Notes

Feb 23, 2016 @ 14:32 | A paper-based sensor that mimics the sensory functions of human skin has been developed for the first time from low-cost and commonly available household materials. Everyday materials from the kitchen drawer, such as aluminum foil, sticky note paper, sponges and tape, have been used by a team of electrical […]

Skin-like Sensor: Robots may get Human like Sensitive Skin

Skin-like Sensor: Robots may get Human like Sensitive Skin

23 August 2015 | Robots do not have look like human but also soon they may get the human like sensitive skin. Researchers say they have developed a skin-like sensor able to detect temperature, pressure and pain simultaneously, and more accurately than currently existing devices. Human skin is a complex and sensitive system containing multiple […]
