+ - Pressure-sensitive Skin Created From Nanowires->

Submitted by ElectricSteve
ElectricSteve (1655317) writes "Using a process described as “a lint roller in reverse,” engineers from the University of California, Berkeley, have created a pressure-sensitive electronic artificial skin from semiconductor nanowires. This “e-skin,” as it’s called, could one day be used to allow robots to perform tasks that require both grip and a delicate touch, or to provide a sense of touch in patients’ prosthetic limbs."
