Flexible ‘skin’ can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Engineers have developed a #flexible #sensor 'skin' that can be stretched over any part of a #robot's body or prosthetic to accurately convey #information about shear forces and vibration, which are critical to tasks ranging from cooking an egg to dismantling a bomb. #Robotics #RobotSkin

Watch this cuttlefish-inspired ‘skin’ morph into a 3-D shape

Inspired by cephalopods like octopuses and cuttlefish, which change their #skin textures for camouflage, researchers fabricated a stretchy #material that inflates into various 3-D shapes and flattens back out. These shape-shifting “skins,” could someday help #robots don quick disguises. #MaterialScience #Robotics
