Brain-machine interface enthusiasts often gush about “closing the loop.” It’s for good reason. On the implant level, it means engineering smarter probes that only activate when they detect faulty electrical signals in brain circuits.
Users of prosthetic limbs could soon be able to feel sensation on them, thanks to an “electronic skin” (e-skin) invented by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS). The artificial nervous system can detect touch more than 1,000 times faster than the human equivalent and is the first e-skin in the world to do so.
The “electronic skin,” inspired by the nervous system, can sense temperature, pressure, or humidity. It could be used to give prosthetic limbs a more complex sense of touch.
Researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a self-repairing material that they hope will someday be used to make mobile touchscreens, prosthetics …
Repairing smartphone touch screens may one day be a thing of the past. The reason: Future smartphones may have screens that “heal” themselves.
Singaporean technologist Benjamin Tee is engineering an electronic skin substitute that will help people wearing prosthetics to one day feel with artificial limbs.
Taking inspiration from jellyfish, researchers have developed a touch-sensitive skin that could be used to help humans interact with machines.
