Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Jul 5, 2018 United Kingdom
A robotic hand covered in 'brainy skin' that mimics the human sense of touch is being developed by scientists. University of Glasgow's Professor Ravinder Dahiya has plans to develop ultra-flexible, synthetic Brainy Skin that 'thinks for itself'. The super-flexible, hypersensitive skin may one day be used to make more responsive prosthetics for amputees, or to build robots with a sense of touch.
