Artificial skin can help rehabilitation and enhance virtual reality

Artificial skin can help rehabilitation and enhance virtual reality

Just like our senses of hearing and vision, our sense of touch plays an important role in how we perceive and interact with the world around us. And technology capable of replicating our sense of touch - also known as haptic feedback - can greatly enhance human-computer and human-robot interfaces for applications such as medical rehabilitation and virtual reality.
