Scientists claimed that they succeeded in making artificial skin that has more sensing capabilities than natural human skin.
Scientists from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University developed this skin and claim that this skin can detect both the pressure applied on an object and its proximity.
This skin also has other capabilities related to electronics and human intermediaries, devices and robots.
In addition, this technology can also be used in prostheses and can provide the possibility of sensing objects for disabled people.
According to Yufeng Wang, professor of Nanyang Technological University, the sensing capabilities of this artificial skin are more than human skin.
One of the characteristics of this skin is that, unlike human skin, which detects objects by touching, it can detect objects without touching them by approaching them. This is a feature that is superior to human skin.
This technology has successfully passed its tests, including finger navigation on an electronic screen, navigation and manipulation of virtual computer game characters.
