Thin skin will help robots 'feel'

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Thin skin will help robots 'feel'
Great, when they become intelligent, we can torture them!

Japanese researchers have developed a flexible artificial skin that could give robots a humanlike sense of touch.

The team manufactured a type of "skin" capable of sensing pressure and another capable of sensing temperature.

These are supple enough to wrap around robot fingers and relatively cheap to make, the researchers have claimed.

The University of Tokyo team describe their work in the latest issue of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
