Artificial pressure and heat sensing skin invented
We’ve long known that artificial intelligence is quite advanced, robotics are coming of age, DARPA has robots that look scary. Now an Assistant Professor Kim Dae-Hyeong at Seoul National University has created an artificial skin that is capable of sensing pressure and heat. It doesn’t look like human skin that is found on Terminator robots (yet).
Most likely these new advances will make their way into human prosthetic that can help with haptic controls for delicate interactions with the environment like shaking a hand or cracking an egg.
The skin has many sensors in a high density that allow for the pressure and heat to be sensed.
