Researchers at the University of Tokyo Someya Lab have been working on robot skin. The skin is a large-area, flexible, rubber, pressure sensitive matrix with integrated organic field-effect transistors. The flexible and inexpensive technology can even be used to create sensitive robot hands and fingers. The research team has recently published a new paper (abstract only) which is summarize in today's Nature Science update. Additional photos of the prototype robot hand are available on the University of Tokyo website.
