Imperceptible Thin Film Sensor to Record Movement and Touch

Imperceptible Thin Film Sensor to Record Movement and Touch

Researchers have developed an ultrathin pressure sensor that can be attached directly to the skin. It can measure how fingers interact with objects to produce useful data for medical and technological applications. The sensor has minimal effect on the users' sensitivity and ability to grip objects, and it is resistant to disruption from rubbing.

Stretchable Sensor Gives Robots and VR a Human Touch

Stretchable Sensor Gives Robots and VR a Human Touch

Researchers have created a fiber-optic sensor that combines low-cost LEDs and dyes, resulting in a stretchable "skin" that detects deformations such as pressure, bending and strain. This sensor could give soft robotic systems - and anyone using augmented reality technology - the ability to feel the same rich, tactile sensations that mammals depend on to navigate the natural world.
